Personalisation and Self-Directed Support

Personalisation and Self-Directed Support is about working with individuals to develop a personalised support plan for the future.

In Perth and Kinross we are changing the way in which we provide support for those requiring social care, in line with new Social Care (Self Directed Support)(Scotland) Act. The new approach will give you more choice, flexibility and control over how your support is provided, and allow you to live an independent and fulfilling life in your local community.

If you need help with everyday things because of a health condition, disability, or personal circumstances, you should contact our Self Directed Support Team to talk through what may be the best options for you.

Self-Directed Support

Self-Directed Support means that you have choices in how your care and support is managed.
