This anonymous survey is about how Self-directed Support (SDS) works for people who use social care – anyone who gets support or services paid for by the council so that they can do everyday tasks.

Taking part could help make positive changes to how social care works in Scotland because our research will provide evidence to help improve policy and practice.

Over 550 people have taken part so farand we want to hear from as many people as possible.

If you use SDS or have been assessed in the last 12 months (no matter what the outcome) we’d love to hear from you.

Any questions or want help taking part? Get in touch via our free helpline 0800 1701 321 (Mon – Fri, 9.30am – 4.30pm) or email us.
