Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance on self-directed support

This guidance is for local authority and Health and Social Care Partnership staff who assess, approve and administer social work and social care and support (including carer support), and approve Self-directed Support (SDS) budgets. It is for those working in adult and children’s services, whether those services are managed by the local authority or delegated to the Integration Authority. It is also for care providers delivering Option 2 and organisations who help people to get the most from their social care support.
