Over the past three years, Pilotlight has brought together commissioners, deliverers and users of services to research and design some of the different pathways to self-directed support. With its new round of funding, the team is keen to explore the opportunities that self-directed support offers to plan creatively for transitions with older people and people with younger onset dementia.
The two projects - Ageing Well with Self-directed Support and Self-directed Support for Substance Misuse Recovery - are underway. Both held initial workshops in September to get both projects off the ground.
Ageing Well is funded by the Scottish Government under the National Strategy for Self-directed Support ‘Building the capacity of Support Organisations'. It is being delivered by a consortium of partners - Iriss, Scottish Care and Dementia Scotland - in East Renfrewshire and South Ayrshire.
The SDS for Substance Misuse Recovery is funded by the Scottish Government under the National Strategy for Self-directed Support ‘Building the Capacity of Provider and Workforce Organisations’. The project is being delivered by a consortium of partners: Iriss, Turning Point Scotland and the Aberdeenshire Alcohol and Drug Partnership.
