Self Directed Support Service

East Ayrshire Carers Centre has secured funding for two years from the Scottish Government to employ a worker to assist carers and their families to access Self-directed Support (SDS)


SDS received Royal Assent on 10th january 2013 making it The Social Care (Self-directed Support) Scotland Act 2013.  The start date for the Act was April 1st 2014.  Since the 1st of April anyone eligible for social care will be offered four options when assessed or reviewed by the Local Authority.

In summary, SDS is the support a person purchases or arranges to meet their assessed health and social care needs.  Its offers far greater flexibility to carers and the person receiving care.  


If you are interested in SDS and would like further information contact us on 01563 571533
