Self Directed Support

What do we mean by Self Directed Support?

Self-Directed Support empowers the person to have flexibility over when and how support is accessed to not only encourage the person to live their lives as independently as possible, but more importantly enables them to live the life they choose.

The person takes responsibility for managing their own support arrangements, this enables the person to find more creative, personalised, and effective ways of getting their needs and outcomes met through the use of micro enterprises, assistive technology and/or by accessing local community activities and services.
