Ayrshire Independent Living Network: Self-Directed Support
Self-directed Support (SDS) has been introduced to give you more choice and flexibility in how you can get the support you need.
There are 4 different ways to do this and they are called ‘SDS Options’. Once Health & Social Care have advised you about the assistance you can have, we’re just a call away for free information, advice and support about SDS.
When you get in touch, our experienced SDS advisors will firstly want to find out what is important to you, or the person you’re caring for. This will let us give you one-to-one support to start you thinking about what option you want.
We can assist you to employ your own personal assistant/s by letting you know about safe recruiting by supporting you through every step you need to know about being a good employer. Remember we have helped lots of people in Ayrshire to employ their own personal assistants so you can speak to someone just like you who wanted to take this option. Once you’re happy with your choice, it means you can begin to get on with the things you really want to be doing!
If you prefer to have agency support we can assist you with this and help you check their Care Inspectorate reports.
