The Social Care (Self- directed Support) (Scotland) Act 2013 was passed in January 2013 and came into force on the 1st April 2014; self-directed support has arrived in East Renfrewshire.

The Self-Directed Support Forum East Renfrewshire is a community organization providing advice and information regarding Self-Directed Support. We are a group of disabled people and carers who have already experienced some of the changes to our care packages that the new way of assessing and shaping social care will bring to service users.

In the forum we have members from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences; there are people with physical disabilities, people with learning disabilities, carers, older people, people with mental health issues and families... and growing numbers. What we have in common is that we all want to share what we know about SDS and support each other in the process.

If you want to join, help out, share experiences or use some of the information that we are gathering then please become a member of the forum.
