This is a conference is for all those involved in taking forward self-directed support for children, young people and families: social workers, commissioners, support providers, family members and voluntary sector organisations. Get involved in furthering work to improve support and the lives of children and young people who need additional support across Scotland.

  • Working together with families as equal partners
  •  Self-directed support for all children in need, including work with care-experienced young people
  •  ‘Doing things Differently’ – Facilitating creative thinking and planning to get the right support
  •  Approaches to young people moving on from school and getting the right support(TBC)
