This research article draws on a study exploring how people with learning disabilities in England and Scotland are responding to the everyday realities of personalisation as it is enacted where they live and show the relationality inherent in their practices. It proposes that social care policy needs to recognise the relational ways in which people build their lives and advocates a redistribution of responsibility to reduce inequalities in the allocation of care.
