Self Directed Support Forth Valley is an independent charity that informs local people about using Self Directed Support, the support package options available to them, and supports them to become an employer of Personal Assistants if they choose that option.
Thanks to funding from Scottish Government’s Support in the Right Direction (SiRD) project, they are now offering free Self Directed Support awareness sessions to groups and organisations engaging with people who may require a support package, either now or in the future.
The awareness session could be a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunity for volunteers and staff members, allowing them to realise the potential of Self Directed Support. Another option is delivery of a session with both staff and volunteers from the group or organisation, and the people they provide services to, in attendance.
To book a session for your group or organisation, or for further information on the sessions, please contact Paul Barrowman by phone: 07748806026, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
