Self-directed Support in Scotland


Welcome to the Scottish Government's Self-directed Support (SDS) website.


This is a one-stop-shop for information about Self-directed Support for people who use social care services and health and social care professionals.


Scottish Government commissioned research into the ongoing national monitoring and evaluation of self-directed support (SDS).  As part of that research stakeholders were invited to become involved in work around the theory of Change.  This Change Map was developed. We are using the map as part of the work to develop a new implementation plan as a means of understanding what needs to change; what is currently working well; what needs to change and who is best placed to do it.
