Scottish Government’s Self-Directed Support website

Categories: Resources

Self-directed support (SDS) allows people to choose how their support is provided to them by giving them as much ongoing control as they want over the individual budget spent on their support.

In other words, SDS is the support a person purchases or arranges to meet agreed health and social care outcomes.

The Scottish Government’s Self-Directed Support (SDS) website is a one-stop-shop for information about Self-Directed Support for people who use social care services and health and social care professionals.
