Self Directed Support

Self Directed Support recognises that you, treatment your family and friends are in the best position to decide how your needs should be met.

Self Directed Support is when….

  • You are in control of the money you get for your support (called a Personal Budget)
  • You choose how to spend the Personal Budget for you support
  • You choose how your support is delivered, see for example who you want to support you
  • You get help to do these things if you need it
  • You have the choice to keep the services that currently support you, choose different services, or create your own individual support
