Helping independent SDS support services meet best practice guidelines

Following publication of the Self-directed Support Framework of Standards in 2021-22, we were commissioned by Scottish Government to develop a self-evaluation tool to enable Independent Support Organisations assess how they are meeting Standard 1, concerning Independent Support and Advocacy.

This work has been developed in parallel with Social Work Scotland, who are developing a self-evaluation tool for Local Authorities to enable them to assess how they are meeting all the SDS Standards.

Both pieces of work form part of the SDS Improvement Plan 2023-2027.
