Abstract
This article reports an analysis of practitioner and policy implementers' views on implementing the strategy document Valuing People. It is based on empirical data generated from the first phase of a research project that seeks to develop best practice in supporting people with an intellectual disability and dementia. The analysis focuses on how Valuing People's four key principles (choice, independence, rights and inclusion) were drawn on and talked about spontaneously by participants. Each of these four principles has important implications for the provision of services for people with intellectual disabilities and dementia. This article adds to the growing dialogue on service provision for this group.
