Transcript

  • 1. Ian Loynes Chief Executive, SCIL Building Capacity & Sustainability for User-Led Organisations SCIL: Celebrating 25 Years 1984-2009 Promoting equality across the South Southampton Centre for Independent Living
  • 2. SCIL Income 2009-10 (Approx)
  • 3. Building sustainable ULO’s
    • SCIL’s experiences show that the important aspects to creating and sustaining successful ULO’s are:
    • WHY users should control their support organisations; and
    • HOW to ensure these organisations are modeled on existing CIL’s
    • (i.e. working to the Social Model of Disability, Peer-support and the principles of Independent Living)
    • What motivates Disabled People to want to set up a ULO
    • Common: interests, values, beliefs.
    • Agents for social change (Campaigning!)
    • Not Just a provider of services, just another business/charity
    • Sustainability is as much about the empowerment of individuals as it is about resources
  • 4. SCIL’s Range of Enabling Services
    • Supporting Disabled People’s empowerment:
      • • Peer based Support Advice & Brokerage on SDS
      • PA Registers
      • Continuing Care ‘SDS’
      • • Peer Advocacy & Peer Mentoring
      • • Personal Development & Participation
    • Promoting Disability Equality:
      • • Training & Consultancy: Public Bodies & Business
      • • Consumer & Access Audits
      • • Practice Learning Opportunities
      • Consultation – Expert Practice Provision
      • - Recent example: Personalisation Expert Panel – useful to LA’s when DP’s empowered and well informed
    • Importantly: SCIL champions Disabled People’s rights, represents progressive social policy views
  • 5.
    • SCIL Successes :
    • Developed best Direct Payments schemes in UK
    • Most pro-active CIL in UK
    • Respected by Disabled People and Government
    • By maintaining clear aims, values, quality
    • Only Disabled People control our agenda
    • Clear vision
    • Pragmatic: We say what is wrong; but will work with those committed to improvements
    • Financial accountability: Projects meet Core Costs
    • Strong focus on income generation
    • Personal Development and Empowerment work is critical in feeding our sustainability: Obvious funding opportunity
    • Have little difficulty recruiting Disabled staff
    • Disabled People drive our constant innovation
  • 6.
    • Local Authorities cannot implement their Personalisation Agenda or their equality duties without effective ULO’s
    • Accountability to local Disabled People
    • Keepers of Independent Living & Social Model Faith
    • ULO’s at the forefront of every progressive social policy advance in last 25 yrs
    • ULO’s have a critical role in enabling users to have an empowered voice – no-one else should speak for us
    • ULO’s Must be Campaigners (not just service providers)
    • ULO’s Must challenge policies (Local & National) which limit the inclusion of Disabled People
  • 7.
    • But how can ULO’s sustain themselves?
    • Successful organisations are successful because they are different – high values and high principles WILL show through
    • Must be more business like – what we have is valuable and unique, sell it (social enterprises)
    • Must be enabled to provide a range of services that generate income
    • Must be creative about minimising expenditure
    • Must work to empower Disabled People to develop their skills within ULO’s rather than expect them to just appear
    • Become “Critical Friends” to Public Bodies
    • Thinking “Outside of the Box”….
