Self-Directed Support in Scotland

What is Self-Directed Support (SDS)?

Self-Directed Support is about you being in control of the support you need to live the life you want. It offers choice, flexibility and control of the support you need to live independently.

We have a long history of delivering person-centered support that meets the needs of young people and their families.

We believe in supporting you, directing you to the care you need. We are committed to working in partnership with you to achieve the best results for your life.
