Self-Directed Support Data Under Development

The Scottish Government has been collecting data on Direct Payments (Option 1) since 2001 and as part of the annual Social Care Survey from 2013. The introduction of SDS resulted in changes to the format of the Social Care Survey from 2015, with information now being gathered about the provision of services and support through all of the SDS options over the course of a financial year.
This report provides analysis of information collected in the 2017 Social Care Survey for all SDS options. Further analysis of the 2016-17 Direct Payments data can be found in this publication
