Everyone is talking about Personalisation and Self Directed
Support - why?
||"Personalisation" stresses that a person should rightly
be at the centre of planning and reviewing the support they need to
live their life.
||"Self Directed Support" (SDS) - is about an individual
deciding and shaping the way in which their Individual Budget will
meet their personal needs and goals - in partnership with
Personalisation and SDS has grown out of a number of
developments - the championing of rights, the introduction of
direct payments, the principles of recovery and re-enablement -
helping people to gain skills and confidence to move on from their
current situation to an independent and fulfilling life, the drive
to ensure services respond to the changing needs and expectations
The Scottish Government is committed to personalisation and SDS,
having launched a 10 year strategy in 2010 and the SDS bill in
March this year.
