Self Directed Support is an outcome we want to achieve for everyone. However to get to that outcome a process needs to be put in place to make that happen. The process of getting to a point where someone can direct their own support generally has a number of stages in it and this is what is meant by the Self Directed Support process. These stages can vary slighly between local authorities but the principles remain the same.
Stage 1 Self evaluation
Stage 2 Resource allocation
Stage 3 Outcome based support planning
Stage 4 Agree the plan and money management option
Stage 5 Live your life
Stage 6 Monitor the money and review the outcome
These stages are explained in more detail over the next few pages. Remember Fair Deal can help you with any aspect of applying for your individual budget and planning your support using your budget in a creative way. We can hold the budget for you even if you don't buy your support from us!
