This is the second annual publication from the Scottish Government on SDS implementation across Scotland, covering the period 2015-16.
This week the Scottish Government released the second annual report on the implementation of Self-directed Support since the enactment of the Social Care (Self-directed Support) (Scotland) Act 2013.
The 2015-16 implementation rate of Self-directed Support across Scotland would be estimated at 25.6 per cent. This is up on the 2014-15 implementation rate, however, better data recording was also observed this year which makes direct comparisons complex.
Option 3 continued to be the most popular choice overall for clients, though age differences were observed with younger clients (65 years of age or younger) more likely to choose Option 1.
