This is the first in a series of round-table discussions that was recorded at the Iriss offices in the busy Merchant City of Glasgow. It forms part of the Iriss Debates project for 2013/14 and brought together individuals from key organisations to discuss the question: 'Self-directed support is just the same as an outcomes focused approach?'. There was a general consensus on the question but each person had their own take on it.
