Self-directed support: training guides

Social Work Scotland in consultation with councils, supported people, carers and other partners have developed a series of training modules which will enable managers to facilitate training for frontline staff to gain a better understanding of the Social Care (Self-directed Support) (Scotland) Act 2013 and its implications for practice.

There are 4 courses in total, each resource can be used in its current format or adapted to fit local requirements and priorities.

The four modules are:

  • Awareness raising
  • Use of Direct Payments to employ family members
  • Legal Duties
  • Children and Families
