Pilotlight is working with teams of people who access and deliver support to design pathways to self-directed support. The co-design team in Moray identified a need for an accessible introduction to self-directed support. They wanted it to be inviting, fun and easy to understand, and so came up with the idea of 'Pick ‘n’ Mix – helping you pick ‘n’ mix the care and support services to live the life you choose’.

Creative Bites has come about because we know that innovation happens when we bring a broad mix of knowledge and expertise together.
Creative Bites is a project where 40 people share their thoughts and ideas to inspire creativity. We ask each contributor to share one thought per calendar month (so we’re looking for 12 contributions per person in total). This means that we can share a helpful ‘bite’ every day throughout the year to inspire imagination in the social services. This process is inspired by The Pastry Box Project.
