Having Pride is the story of Simon Stevens, a man with significant impairments who has defied many social norms and expectations to achieve more than anyone could ever imagine. Born in 1974, within an era when society had little expectations for what people with impairments could achieve if anything, Simon fought to be heard and be able to reach his full potential as a leading and experienced independent dysability consultant, trainer and social change agent. This became a lifelong mission for him as he battled against an oppressive society to achieve his goals and outcomes.

This ‘Achieve Support’ discussion paper details a concept for the implementation of a fully integrated impairment related assistance and support assessment and allocation system and process as described by Simon Stevens, an independent disability consultant working in the adult social care and disability field. The intention is that the proposed idea would replace much of the policies, systems and structures of adult social care and disability related welfare benefits within the UK. The concept can be seen as a combination of ideas and principles that has been brought together in a coordinated and coherent concept in how social care and disability related support, designed for children, young people, working aged adults and older people, can be delivered effectively and efficiently in a manner that is truly personalised and able to meet future funding requirements.
