The Scottish Parliament’s Health, Social Care and Sport Committee is undertaking an inquiry into how well the Self-directed Support legislation has worked since it came into force in April 2014.

SDS Scotland would like to hear from our members what you believe it’s important for the inquiry to understand about SDS.

Please join us for an online session where you’ll have the chance to share your views, to inform SDS Scotland’s formal response to the inquiry. As an organisation representing Independent SDS Support organisations in Scotland, it’s especially important we hear your views on how Independent Support has been an enabler to the implementation of SDS legislation, and what key challenges remain ten years on.

In the session we’ll want to ask your views on:

  • what are some of the positive things SDS legislation has brought about?
  • what have been some of the challenges to implementing the law, particularly since the last post-legislative review in 2017?

The session will take place on Teams on Tuesday 19th December, 11am – 12.30pm
