The website also provides opportunity to sign up for email updates to the Handbook, along with an offer for ‘Taking Charge’, a guide which pulls together your ‘rights’ to a decent life, with choice and control, giving information on ‘what you have a right to expect’ from services, education and employment. The guide is intended to complement the Disability Rights Handbook.
