Pilotlight: Self-directed support for small business

Published on 28 Oct 2014

Pilotlight is working with co-design teams of people who use and deliver services across Scotland to design four pathways to self-directed support for seldom heard groups.

Many disabled people want to work but face barriers to employment. Self-directed support has the potential to enable disabled people to work through small business start ups.

In Moray we worked with people who use social care services and the commissioners and deliverers of social care and employment support services to design a pathway for how self-directed support can be used to realise disabled people's small business aspirations.

In our latest SDS for small business video, watch small business owners, commissioners and deliverers of social care services tell the story of this Pilotlight pathway and the outcomes that it achieved.
