Review of Independent Information and Support Services Funded by the Scottish Government

This report, commissioned by the Scottish Government, presents findings from an evaluation of projects funded to deliver activities under the Scottish 'Support in the Right Direction' (SIRD) Fund. 

This has been part of a wider package of investment since 2011 to facilitate the transition to self directed support in adult social care. Critically, the review findings point towards independent information and support as being an essential part of a well-functioning, choice and control-based social care system.
