National SDS Collaboration

The National SDS Collaboration is a group of stakeholders involved in the implementation and improvement of Self-Directed Support in Scotland. 

Established in 2022, the group meets monthly and includes representatives from across public, private and third sector, who all have an interest and a role to play in delivering and shaping SDS.

Self Directed Support Scotland chair the National SDS Collaboration and Social Work Scotland’s SDS Project team act as secretary for the group.

You can find the most up to date list of members of the National SDS Collaboration here and Terms of Reference for the group here. 


The National SDS Collaboration provides a channel for the voice of national stakeholders to influence Scottish Government developments around Self-Directed Support. 

Since being established, the Collaboration has played a key role in developing the national strategy for SDS implementation, the SDS Improvement Plan 2023 – 2027. You can find out more about this work here.
