This concluding chapter draws together some salient policy implications for politicians, policy makers and professionals concerned with the further development of independent living for disabled people and user involvement in services for this increasingly large and diverse section of the UK population. The social inclusion of disabled people remains a central priority and it is still of crucial importance to maintain the impetus towards greater user involvement in the development and delivery of support services for independent living in the community. However, such action is not by itself sufficient: it must be complemented by significant progress in dismantling the wider social and environmental barriers and discriminatory attitudes in British society.
