Scottish Government funding for SDS 2018-2021

Scottish Government’s Support in the Right Direction 2021 (SiRD2021) Fund aims to continue to embed Self-directed Support as the mainstream approach to social care.

Support in the Right Direction 2021 (SiRD2021) opens to applications today Monday 5 February 2018.

Aiming to increase the delivery of independent support for people who require social care, SiRD2021 has been developed by Scottish Government in partnership with Inspiring Scotland and Self-directed Support Scotland, and in consultation with the independent support sector.

Part of a £9m investment into third sector organisations over the next three years, funds in the region of £2.9 million per financial year will be available for not-for-profit organisations to provide independent support from October 2018 to March 2021.
