Why join Stay Connected?

"Having the expertise of an organisation like In Control, which has been instrumental in driving this agenda forward is invaluable, as is being part of a strong, active network of like-minded organisations that are committed to working together sharing best practice and tools to make change happen.

"We've already had some training support from In Control, which really helped staff to understand the values and ethos behind personalisation and how we can ensure that the people using our services really do control their lives."
