‘From 2006: a Care Odyssey’ was a project delivered by North East Lincolnshire Library Service in partnership with Care Plus Group.  Mike Cartwright, freelance audio and radio producer from local business Soundschool was commissioned to produce the audio-documentary to examine what improvements have been made since the 2006 Commission for Social Care Inspection Report and evaluate improvements and shortfalls in service provision.

Other aims included:
• Exploring the impact on and value of Care Plus services for people with learning and physical disabilities
• Providing an insight into what it is like to live with a disability in North East Lincolnshire
• Building on established partnerships from the 2012 Sporting Voices projects and developing new links in the disabled community
• Producing a resource of local historical value, uncovering the lives of people who are often hidden from history, and giving them a voice
• Promoting social inclusion
• Providing a forum for disabled people to give frank and open expressions and views
