Findings from a commissioned review of independent information and support services in relation to Self-directed Support for social care, in 2017

Executive Summary

Presents findings from a commissioned review of independent information and support services for Self-directed Support (SDS) in social care. The purpose of the study was to provide an objective and critical review of services funded through the Scottish Government’s Support in the Right Direction Fund. It fulfils a specific commitment in the SDS Implementation Plan 2016-2018 to evaluate how independent information and support help and enable people to achieve personal outcomes, to be in control of their social care and to make their own decisions about social care. It involved largely qualitative research with service users, project staff, local authorities and other SDS stakeholders between June and November 2017.
