Self Directed Support (SDS Scotland)

The Self Directed Support Bill (SDS), provides you with more choice & control over how you receive your care and support services.

 

More and more people are looking at taking control of their own support arrangements and more options are now becoming widely availabe through the implementation of the Self Directed Support Bill 2013.

 

The SDS Bill defines in terms of four options that local councils will have a duty to offer.

 

What is Self-Directed Support ?

Self-Directed support (SDS) allows people to choose how their support is provided, to meet agreed health & social care outcomes.

 

SDS offers a number of options for getting support. The persons individual (or personal) buget can be:

  • taken as a Direct Payment (a cash payment)
  • Allocated to a provider the individual chooses (sometimes called an individual service fund, where the council or funder, holds the budget, but the person is in charge of how its spent)
  • Or the council can arrange a service.

Individuals can choose a mixture of all 3 for different types of support

 

In short, you can now be more involved in your care support and you have the right to be consulted on who will deliver your individual care package.
