‘My Support My Choice’ – share your experiences of Self-directed Support

Section: Policy into PracticeType: News Item Date Published: 18th December 2019

Last chance to share your experiences of SDS – 'My Support My Choice' survey closes on 14 February 2020.

The ALLIANCE and Self Directed Support Scotland have been researching people’s experience of social care in Scotland. We aim to establish how Self-directed Support (SDS) is working for people who use social care – anyone who gets support or services paid for by the council so that they can do everyday tasks.

We’ve had over 550 responses so far to ‘My Support My Choice: user experiences of Self-directed Support in Scotland’ – but we want to hear from as many people as possible. If you use SDS or have been assessed in the last 12 months (regardless of the outcome of this process) we’d love to hear from you.

Please complete our anonymous survey here (this link will take you away from our website), and share it with anyone who might be interested.

The survey will close on Friday 14th February 2020. 

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.

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 at:

‘My Support My Choice: user experiences of Self-directed Support in Scotland’ is a joint project between the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland and Self Directed Support Scotland, funded by the Scottish Government. More information is available here.
