Welcome to the In Control Scotland website.

Our aim is to support the development of a sustainable system of self-directed support in Scotland where people are in control of and able to direct the – how, when, in what way and by whom – they are supported.


We hope you find the resources and information on our website helpful. We intend to keep adding to and updating the site over time with further and new resources.


Individual Service Funds – A Guide to Making Self-Directed Support Work for Everyone

On 21st March 2018 we launched our ‘Individual Service Funds (ISF’s) a guide to making Self-Directed Support work for everyone’ paper.  The paper was written by Sam Smith, CEO C-Change Scotland and Frances Brown an independent consultant on behalf of In Control Scotland and the Centre for Welfare Reform in association with Citizen Network.

The aim of this guide is to promote inclusion and social justice through greater understanding of the benefits of the creative use of Individual Service Funds.

Approximately 60 people attended the launch and had the opportunity to listen to some of our fabulous speakers talk about self-directed support and how we are all working together to help people be in control and live the life’s they want.  To download a copy of the paper, click here.
