Self Directed Support (SDS)

Self Directed Support (SDS)

Self Directed Support

This is part of the Personalisation agenda to encourage individuals to choose services that fit them rather than trying to fit into services that are built for groups of people not individuals. Eligibility for Self Directed Support is assessed by a social worker. The end result is your Personal Budget which is individual to you. You can spend your SDS on anything that meets your goals, is healthy and legal, and approved by your Local Authority.

Real Lives provides personal support to people in their homes and communities. It is funded by social or health care budgets or by the individual privately. To find out more about what support Real Lives can provide, please visit our Services page.
