Formerly Free To Live Leeds, Leeds Centre for Integrated Living (Leeds CIL) is a Disabled Peoples User Led Organisation (DPULO) that believes disabled and older people and families with disabled children have the right to an independent life. Leeds CIL uses a social model of disability approach to: Improve quality of life Remove barriers that restrict choice and control and disable people and their families Be a centre for excellence on supported living Influence and affect the processes and policies of local public bodies (council, health etc) on the provision of personal budgets Support people who need assistance to safely meet their identified needs and personal objectives Enable disabled people to develop their strengths, abilities, confidence, and skills Our Independent Living Teams support disabled people of all ages to take control of any help they need with personal care, daily living tasks and getting out and about in their community. This includes supporting people to recruit, manage and pay their own support workers, usually called Personal Assistants (PAs). Employing PAs enables our customers to choose who they want to provide their support and how and when the support is provided, to suit their and their families' lifestyles.
