Self Directed Support

We believe that individuals who need support to live their lives should be in control of that support and of their own lives.  Self Directed Support (SDS) is when an individual (or their family):
  • are given money from the Local Authority to buy the services or support they need rather than Social Work arranging services for them.
  • have more flexibility, choice and control over the way that support is provided.
  • is enabled to live the life that they wish.

As a provider of flexible services we are well placed to take SDS forward and continue to develop our approach to this model by planning how we organise and deliver services as well as reviewing organisational processes.

We have experience of supporting people who receive funding directly to pay for their support.
