Self-directed support in Scotland

Capturing the experience of people living with dementia through partnership working in Scotland.

The Life Changes Trust is a Scottish charity that wants to improve the lives of people affected by dementia. The Trust is interested in self-directed support and how it currently works in practice for people and their families.

The Life Changes Trust asked social enterprise Community Catalysts to talk to and learn from people and their families who have experience of self-directed support. Community Catalysts and the Life Changes Trust wanted the information gained to help improve understanding of how self-directed support works in Scotland for people living with dementia.

The report captures interviews with people living with dementia and their carers who had experience of self-directed support.
