SDSS has 2 categories of membership – Full and Associate.
Full Members are user-led disabled people’s organisations (see definition below) or organisations that are working towards this status.
Associate members are organisations that have an interest in self-directed support (SDS) and which may have an SDS function, e.g. information service. These are not user-led disabled people’s organisations.
“A user-led organisation is one where the people the organisation represents, or provides services to, have a majority on the Management Committee or Board, and where there is clear accountability to members and/or service users.”
Membership to SDSS is free of charge.
