Physically disabled young adults are a minority among users of adult social care. Assuming responsibility for their care and support arrangements is a realistic aspiration for many of these individuals. However, there are a number of potential barriers to achieving this. For example, adult social care practitioners may have little experience of working with this age group and the health conditions they typically have. In addition, the young adults themselves have limited life experiences and their life skills and maturity are still developing. This study aimed to identify what support physically disabled young adults (aged 18-30) need in order to achieve their preferred levels of choice and control over their support arrangements.
