The Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport has launched the implementation plan for self-directed support 2019-2021.
This implementation plan sets out a guide for the local planning and delivery of social care support services in the form of a change map. It sets out the actions that national public and voluntary sector organisations will take to support authorities to build on their progress towards more flexible and responsive social care support, co-produced with communities and supported people.
This plan will be of interest to anyone involved in delivering or using social care support in Scotland. It is designed to enable professionals within health and social care to change the ways in which they work, enabling greater flexibility, choice and control for people using support.
