Experiences of SDS in Moray
Self Directed Support Scotland (SDSS) and the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE) have published a report exploring the experiences of people who access or wish to access Self-directed Support (SDS) in Moray.
This report is part of a suite of Local Authority reports collated during the largest direct consultation of SDS to date – My Support, My Choice: User Experiences of Self-directed Support in Scotland (MSMC).
My Support My Choice: People’s Experiences of Self-directed Support and Social Care in Moray 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 Moray – particularly regarding the development and local implementation of the National Care Service.
Research participants in Moray acknowledged SDS as important to achieving a higher quality of life and independent living and shared a range of positive and negative feedback when asked to summarise their experiences.
The research team are organising an online feedback session with key stakeholders from Moray on Tuesday 14 September from 11am – 1pm.
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 Moray is very valuable in discussing next steps.
If you have any questions about the research, please email Dr Hannah Tweed, Senior Policy Officer at the ALLIANCE (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mark Han-Johnson, Membership Development Executive at SDSS (email@example.com).
