Self-Directed Support Scotland
With the Self-Directed Support (Scotland) Bill entering its final stages before receiving Royal Assent, Capita’s 2nd National Self-Directed Support Scotland Conference comes at a perfect time to look at the practical delivery of the Self-Directed Support (SDS) agenda.
As focus shifts towards implementation, this conference will provide an excellent opportunity for delegates to feed into current SDS consultations and programmes assessing the best delivery options to achieve the most improved outcomes for service users. This timely event prepares delegates to face the leadership and management challenges that SDS implementation will bring with confidence, to ensure a smooth transition in service delivery.
Critical issues to be addressed include:
• Tailoring delivery options to suit local needs whilst ensuring national consistency
• Putting service users at the heart of self-directed support design and delivery
• Developing successful engagement between commissioners and service providers
• Building capacity within the voluntary sector
• Managing the skills requirements of support workers
Attend this conference to hear the latest policy update and best practice guidance on improving choice, flexibility and control through self-directed support.
