Experiences of SDS in Dumfries and Galloway

October 25, 2021

Date: November 11, 2021

Time: 11:00 - 13:00

Location: Online

Self Directed Support Scotland (SDSS) and the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE) have published an Easy Read summary of their latest My Support, My Choice report, exploring the experiences of people who access or wish to access Self-directed Support (SDS) in Dumfries and Galloway.

My Support My Choice: People’s Experiences of Self-directed Support and Social Care in Dumfries and Galloway highlights evidence of good practice and where improvements can be made. We hope it can assist in the strategic planning and delivery of future SDS/ social care in Dumfries and Galloway – particularly regarding the development and local implementation of the National Care Service.

The research team are organising an online feedback session with key stakeholders from Dumfries and Galloway on Thursday 11 November from 11am – 1pm. All welcome!

Please register for the free session and join the conversation as we explore the delivery of SDS at every stage of the process, from first contact, to assessment, establishing eligibility, allocating resources, support planning and reviews.

The input of those living and/or working in Dumfries and Galloway is very valuable in discussing next steps.

The full report will be published in the coming weeks.

If you have any questions about the research, please email Dr Hannah Tweed, Senior Policy Officer at the ALLIANCE (hannah.tweed@alliance-scotland.org.uk) or Mark Han-Johnson, Membership Development Executive at SDSS (mark@sdsscotland.org.uk).
