Self-directed Support: Draft Guidance on Care & Support - Easy-Read Summary

An easy-read summary of the draft guidance that accompanies the Social Care (Self-directed Support) (Scotland) Act 2013.


The Scottish Government has written guidance to help professionals and others understand the new Self-directed Support Act and other social care laws.

The guidance covers support for children, adults and carers of any age.

The Scottish Government wants to find out if the guidance is clear and helpful. It wants to hear from anyone who gets support, carers, or any staff involved in providing support.

There are also draft Regulations (rules) with more information about the Self-directed Support Act. Please take a look at these too.

You will find them on the Scottish Government website at:
