 Link to a short survey 

The Social Care (Self-directed Support) (Scotland) Act 2013 made self-directed support a legal right for everyone receiving social care. it is based on the statutory principles of participation and dignity; involvement; informed choice and collaboration.

Implementation of self-directed support is a major culture shift for everyone working in social care and also affects the systems that we use to administer and track support. Much has been achieved since we began moving to self-directed support in 2010 and you can read about progress here

In that time, we have increased our understanding of what needs to change for self-directed support to work well. We have developed a draft Change Map of the key building blocks that need to be in place and would like your views on it.

At this event we will seek your views on the Change Map and on what is working well as part of our engagement work to inform our new Implementation Plan from 2019-2021. We will also explore what you think should happen at national level to support the changes you are making at local level.

If you are unable to make one of the events, then we would welcome your views through this short survey open until 21st December

These events are aimed at:

  • people who work in social work and social care or
  • people who work in related roles in the voluntary/community sectors

We will be working separately with people who receive social care, their families and carers.
