The Coalition of Care and Support Providers in Scotland has organised an event on Monday, 22nd September, to engage with providers in the Scottish Borders on the work they are doing to establish National Guidance for Providers on Self-directed support (SDS).
This is an opportunity to come together to talk about the challenges for providers in a rural area, as well as topics such as the principles and ethics of SDS, workforce and finance.
More details on the event, which will take place at Tweed Horizons, can be found here, along with details on how to book a place.
It is hoped to have Haylis Smith, Planning & Development Manager, Mental Health & Addictions, Scottish Borders Council at the the event. Haylis brings experience of commissioning and trying to support and promote change to an SDS approach within mental health.
