The National Strategy for Self Directed Support (SDS) in Scotland sets out a vision for high quality support and advice which enables people to make genuine individual choices and promotes independent living. Known as ‘Independent Support’, organisations including charities and care providers, are helping people make informed decisions about SDS to ensure that any care or support they access responds flexibly to their individual circumstances. The SDS Support in the Right Direction Fund (2015 – 2018) aims to build the capacity and availability of independent support services across Scotland. In Year 1 of the Fund (April 2015- March 2016), 34 projects spent £2.5 million developing and delivering their services.
