........’people ..increasingly involved in shaping the support they require to achieve....outcomes’ – ADSW paper
An identified allocation of resources at the start of the process
A support system that facilitates choice, control and flexibility
A focus on outcomes and a change in culture and shift of power
Maintaining quality of life
e.g. Achieving and maintaining acceptable levels of safety, social contact
Time limited change
e.g. Improving confidence and regaining skills
Process outcomes - impact of service process
e.g. Service users feeling valued and respected, listened to
The expectation of the Scottish Government is
that we will make Self Directed Support
‘Available to all, imposed on none’.
Our approach in Fife is to learn by doing.
We will find creative solutions together, share
them, evaluate differences from the perspective
of the individual, the family, social work staff
and staff from partner organisations.
