Your care, your choice (Scotland)
Self Directed Support (SDS) is about allowing people who receive care to choose and manage their support.
SDS measures - such as Direct Payments - have the potential to be life-changing, yet take-up is patchy. Those who use SDS often have difficulties navigating the system or getting their local authority to apply SDS flexibly.
We're fighting for:
- greater awareness of SDS, particularly in rural areas
- more flexible, creative administration of SDS so that people can make meaningful choices.
What we're doing:
- working with the Scottish government to ensure that the voices of people with MS are heard when developing and implementing this policy.
- working with MSPs to ensure the Social Care (Self Directed Support) Bill takes into account the needs of people affected by MS
