Shifting power

Join the ALLIANCE and CCPS to explore and discuss the future of Self-directed Support (SDS) and adult social care in Scotland.


Ongoing public debate, and recent reports – including the CCPS ‘Big Ideas’ (this link will take you away from our website), the report of the Independent Review of Adult Social Care (this link will take you away from our website), and the ALLIANCE and SDSS My Support My Choice research – indicate that the time is ripe for an event to explore and discuss the future of adult social care and how to shift the balance of power to enable people who access Self-directed Support (SDS) in Scotland to have increased choice and control over their support and their lives.
