Self-Directed Support

Self-Directed Support is all about people having choice, control and flexibility over their care and support.

In 2014 new laws came into force in Scotland, giving people a right to be offered Self-Directed Support in a way that makes sense to them. What this means is that Aberdeen City Council, guided by the new laws, have been working to make sure people are offered as much choice and control over their care and support needs as possible.

Aberdeen City have developed their own SDS portal called MyLife.

Information can also be found at the Scottish Government National Self-Directed Support Website

  • If you would like to find out more about accessing Self-Directed Support you should contact your Social Worker or Care Manager.
  • If you are not currently known to Social Care services then you should make a referral to see if you are eligible to receive any support.
