Self-directed Support

Carers and young carers

All our information pages on Self-Directed Support are undergoing a refresh as a result of the implementation of the Social Care Self-Directed Support (Scotland) Act 2013.

If you care for someone but are unpaid for this you can have your needs assessed by Social Work Resources.

Self-directed support will allow you to choose the support you need as a carer for example in identifying and agreeing a short break tailored to meet your needs as well as that of the person you care for.
