Abstract

This research was set up to consider issues around the implementation of Self Directed Support. It is relatively small scale, exploratory and represents a ‘snapshot’ of activity across different organisations in different geographical areas. It reveals a substantial number of issues impacting on implementation which would benefit from more sustained analysis.
