Conversation with Cathy McGregor and Lorraine Gillies from Audit Scotland about the national self-directed support survey 2017.

Pilotlight - pathways to self-directed support

Pilotlight, an Iriss project, works with co-design teams of people who use and deliver services across Scotland to design pathways to self-directed support (SDS). Using a design approach, it aims to demonstrate how to design support for seldom heard groups, provide more personalised and appropriate services, and increase the marketplace of support providers.

Autism and acting

Liam's career four years on

In 2012 Liam Robertson, who is on the autism spectrum, told us about his passion for TV, film and theatre and his ambition to become an actor. Liam's story is inspirational, demonstrating the importance of seeing the person, not the disability.

The Art of the Possible

Pilotlight is a partner in an event - Capacity Building: The Art of the Possible - organised by Providers and Personalisation to share learning around self-directed support.

In 2012, the Scottish Government Self-directed Support team funded projects aimed at building provider capacity to deliver more personalised support. As this round of projects come to a close they are getting together to share what they have learned about what has worked (and what hasn't.)

D-Cards

Difficulties, decisions, deliberations

This is a series of 22 process cards. Of these nine are ‘think’ cards for planning and preparing for difficult discussions, and 13 are ‘activity’ cards which present methods that can be done in a group. The cards explain what the process is, it’s purpose, how to engage in this process and what we thought did and did not work when engaging in this process. This is not a ‘how to’ guide, but a tool to help you explore new approaches and develop your own.

Self-directed support: a voyage of discovery

Evidence explorers project report

At times of change and uncertainty, evidence becomes very important to build confidence about how to put policy into practice. Although some relevant evidence exists, as it becomes the mainstream mechanism fordelivering social care, self-directed support (SDS) will bring significant new challenges and evidence needs.
