Working alongside you and your family Self-Direct-Support (SDS) keeps you in control of the support that suits you and your child, together creating a service that fits around you.
Self Direct Support SDS is where you will be allocated a personal budget called a direct payment, this money will give you more control over the services you receive.
This gives you control over what support you need, when and where you need it and who provides it. This however can raise a lot of questions and can leave you feeling worried.
We believe that you are the professional in your child’s life and so you know best what they need. You tell us what you need to make your child’s life better. We will work alongside you and you family to create a package of support that suits you and your child and together we will create a service that fits around you.
