Since the publication of the User's Guide to Self-directed Support in 2009 there have been some significant developments to national policy, including the publication of a National Strategy and the passing of an Act on self-directed support.
The information contained in the User's Guide is still relevant and will be useful to anyone using self-directed support or thinking about trying it for the first time. The purpose of this supplementary leaflet is to give you an update on some of those wider developments that are not covered in the user guide. An important change is that Self-directed Support (SDS) is more than direct payments.
