Self Directed Support Webinar with Age Scotland

Join us and Age Scotland (About Dementia) for a webinar about self directed support for carers of people living with dementia

About this Event

SDS was intended to transform the organisation of social care giving users greater choice and control over how care is delivered and promoting independent living. It was written with Human Rights at the centre and was supposed to help those rights become a reality. We know from conversations with carers and people living with dementia that this has been very far from the case for most. Too often people aren’t presented with all of the options available, and some of the options such as direct payments can be off-putting without the right support to make them manageable.

This webinar for International Carers’ Rights Day will be held via Zoom on Wednesday 25 November 2020 from 3:00pm to 4:30pm, and will look at SDS from the perspective of carers of people living with dementia. Speakers:

  • Mark Han-Johnston, SDS Scotland, your rights to SDS and how to make the most of them
  • Eileen Alexander, a carer’s view point, interviewed by Amanda McCarren, tide
  • Kainde Manji, About Dementia, Campaigning for human rights

This will be an interactive session and our panel are keen to hear and respond to your questions. You can submit your questions in advance via the link here.

This webinar is free to attend, and will be held via Zoom. Once you have registered to attend, we will send you the link for joining the meeting in advance of the date.
