LGBTQI+ Disabled People say there are many benefits to using self-directed support, such as having more choice and control over their care. But there are also challenges. For example, they fear coming out to personal assistants (PA’s) or support workers because their care might be jeopardised. New resources from SCIE, the University of Bristol, Regard and Stonewall, highlight, for the first time, some of the issues faced by LGBTQI+ Disabled People in England.  The resources include short films and briefings providing advice and information for LGBTQI+ Disabled People, as well as PAs and support workers.
