The Social Care (Self-directed Support) (Scotland) Act 2013 goes live on the 1st April 2014 and the implementation of the National Strategy is well under way across Scotland. Pilotlight is contributing to these preparations. The project involves co-design teams of people who use and deliver services across Scotland to design pathways to self-directed support. Using a design approach, the project is demonstrating how to implement support for seldom heard groups, provide more personalised and appropriate services and increase the marketplace of support providers.

In this episode, co-design team members of Moray pathway talk about their Pilotlight experience and what they think about self-directed support for people with mental health problems.
