Welcome To Good Self-Directed Support

We’re interested in finding out what you think about your support: what works and what doesn’t. We want to see how it could promote genuine independent living and enable more disabled people’s and carers’ lives to be full of choices, opportunities and participation. We also want to find out how much it benefits families, friends, the community and society when disabled people and carers have the right kind of support
