  • Scottish Government announces funding for Self-Directed Support for 2018-2021

    Created: 12/02/2018

    The Scottish Government’s Support in the Right Direction 2021 (SiRD2021) Fund aims to continue to embed Self-directed Support as the mainstream approach to social care.

    Support in the Right Direction 2021 (SiRD2021) opened to applications on Monday 5 February 2018.

    Aiming to increase the delivery of independent support for people who require social care, SiRD2021 has been developed by Scottish Government in partnership with Inspiring Scotland and Self-directed Support Scotland, and in consultation with the independent support sector.

    Part of a £9m investment into third sector organisations over the next three years, funds in the region of £2.9 million per financial year will be available for not-for-profit organisations to provide independent support from October 2018 to March 2021.

    Aileen Campbell, Minister for Public Health and Sport said: 'Independent support plays an important part in helping people exercise choice and control over their social care support.  I am delighted that we are able to provide further support for independent support organisations over the next two and a half years as part of Support in the Right Direction 2021.'

    Applications close on 03 April 2018.
