SDSS has 2 types of membership: Full and Associate

Full member organisations are Disabled People’s Organisations that support people to access SDS.
These organisations are run (governed) by disabled people, for disabled people.
Associate member organisations support individuals to access SDS. They are not Disabled People’s Organisations but they are not-for-profit.
For more information on membership eligibility criteria go to the Membership eligibility criteria page.

Here is what we offer our member organisations…

  • The opportunity to be part of the national network of organisations working on self-directed support
  • Access to all SDSS resources, e.g. good practice guides
  • Invitations to Members’ Events
  • Invitations to training sessions, designed and delivered in response to the needs of the membership
  • Bespoke support with capacity building and development
  • Regular information and updates on the latest developments within SDS
  • Support to liaise with the Local Authority and to influence change within the Scottish
