  • Transforming Social Care: Scotland's progress towards implementing self-directed support 2011-2018

    Created: 28/08/2018, Updated: 29/08/2018

    Since 2010, Scotland has been on a journey to embed self-directed support as Scotland’s mainstream approach to social care. Audit Scotland produced a progress report in 2017 recommending that the Scottish Government should "report publicly on the outcomes it has achieved from the almost £70 million funding it has committed to support implementation of SDS."

    The purpose of this report is to meet that recommendation, identifying the progress made between 2011 and 2018 towards delivery of this transformational change in social care.

    In producing the report, Scottish Government have worked closely with partners around the outcomes and learning gained during this period. The report marks a significant milestone in the journey towards the full implementation of self-directed support as Scotland’s mainstream approach to social care. The impact and learning of the last seven years of investment evidence the beginning of a clear shift towards social care that offers genuine choice and control to supported people and their families.
