In her foreword, to this book Dr Jenny Morris says:
“At a time when as Judy Hunt writes: ‘disabled people are finding many of the gains of the 1980s and 1990s being eroded’, this book is a timely reminder of where these gains came from. It is an important book, based on the experiences of someone who was there at the beginning of the struggle amongst disabled people in residential care to
have control over their lives, which gave birth to the movement for independent living.”

Based on her lifetime of campaigning along with disabled people, working in various community services, and years of dedicated research, Judy Hunt’s book will become a standard text for the disabled people’s movement for years to
come. This is more than a history book for it aims to contribute to the ongoing struggle disabled people now face to maintain some control of their lives and also caring professionals seeking to provide enlightened support in the
community. In the face of severe austerity measures this book will give greater understanding of what can be achieved by collective effort and a clear sense of direction.
