Enabling people, carers and families to make informed choices about what their social care is and how it is delivered
Self-directed Support Service (Dundee & Angus)
Self-directed Support (SDS) enables people, carers and families to make informed choices about what their social care support is and how it is delivered.
People who are eligible for support for their health and social care can direct their own support through a choice of 4 options, including a Direct Payment.
Our Self-directed Support Service can help you decide which option is best for you. The team support both carers and disabled people across Dundee and Angus.
We also provide a payroll service to support people who receive funding to employ personal assistants. Our payroll service can process your payroll, calculate statutory deductions, annual leave and deal with HMRC and other agencies on your behalf.
For those who require additional support, our Third Party Money Management service can operate the bank account for you and complete your monitoring returns for the funder (fees payable)
