National Care Service Forum 2023: follow-up questions and answers - easy read

On 30 October 2023, we hosted our annual National Care Service (NCS) National Forum in Glasgow. In this easy read we have collected and answered some of the questions people asked on the day.

Will the NCS learn from Self-directed Support (SDS)?

The plans for the NCS involve human rights, independent living and supporting people to thrive. Self-Directed Support (SDS) helps deliver these aims.

We are working with local councils, charities and COSLA to improve SDS.

We published our SDS Improvement Plan last year. It aims to embed these SDS principles in social care support in Scotland, including the NCS:

  • participation
  • dignity
  • involvement
  • informed choice
  • collaboration
