My Support My Choice: have your say

18th June 2019

SDS Scotland and the ALLIANCE want to hear from people who receive or have been assessed for SDS in the last 12 months.

LogoThe ‘My Support My Choice: user experiences of Self-directed Support in Scotland’ research project believes that people’s experiences can help make positive changes to how social care and SDS are delivered in Scotland. It aims to provide good evidence to help improve policy and practice.

The project seeks input from anyone who receives SDS or who has been assessed for Self-directed Support in the last 12 months, regardless of the outcome of this process. The project is especially keen to hear about people’s experiences of being assessed for and using SDS around mental health.

Research reports will be published online, and the project will share recommendations with Scottish Government, local authorities, participants, and other relevant organisations and people.

Get involved

Input can be given via interviews, focus groups, and / or a detailed national survey. The survey asks about the experiences of social care users and their families, and examines local authority assessment, information and continual support practices in relation to SDS.
