What are people saying...

I think it is the most practical and sensible way of thinking about support - costs and practicalities. A very powerful and well-designed way of exploring the role of money in helping people have decent lives as citizens.

Dr. Simon Duffy Centre of Welfare Reform

The 24/7 Grid is an invaluable tool for Costed Support planning - it empowers people to take control of their support and offers a simple way for them to manage and account for their direct payments.

I enjoyed colouring in the activities I do and showing my friends and key worker what I do all the week. I also have a timetable grid on my wall that shows me that Richard is going to take me swimming.
