SDS Support Services (East Dunbartonshire)
by Take Control Claimed
Take Control East Dunbartonshire can help you to set up and manage your support arrangements. Our experienced team of Advisers will work with you to help you to arrange the support detailed in your support plan.
In East Dunbartonshire the Council will involve you in an assessment of your needs. Some people already know what they need and feel happy to discuss this with their Social Worker. Others will need support to talk through what support needs they have. You may choose to involve a family member, carer, friend or the local Advocacy service.
From this, your Support Plan will be developed. The support Plan will set out your choices of support to help you meet the agreed goals and outcomes identified in your assessment. For e.g.
How you intend to achieve your outcomes
How much it will cost
Who is responsible for providing or arranging the support you require
How any risks will be managed
provide independent information and advice on Self-directed Support and your options
arrange information sessions about how to make Self-directed Support work for you
find the best way to achieve the outcomes detailed in your support plan
