Self-Directed Support

Self–Directed Support allows people to be in charge of their support so they can live the life they choose. The Scottish Government Strategy on Self-Directed Support  was published in December 2010.

A Direct Payment is money in lieu of services organised by your local Social Work Department. This allows people with an assessed need to take control and arrange their own support.

“A Direct Payment is a form of helping me to get the right support and right people, with help from my provider Carr Gomm. It gives you more freedom” Freya
