August 9, 2021

Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am

Open to all

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 Scottish Borders.

My Support My Choice: People’s Experiences of Self-directed Support and Social Care in Scottish Borders 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 Scottish Borders – 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 Scottish Borders on Tuesday 24 August 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 Scottish Borders 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 ( or Mark Han-Johnson, Membership Development Executive at SDSS (
