Self Directed Support

Self Directed Support is a way of providing social care which offers more choice and flexibility in meeting your care and support needs.  Self Directed Support promotes person-centred care and independent living through increased choice, control and flexibility.  You will be able to make decisions on: the type of support you want; when you want that support; and, who you want to provide it.

Self Directed Support is available to people who have been assessed and require social care support.  Following the assessment, if it is agreed that you require support, you will be allocated a ‘personal budget’ to spend on your care and support needs. 

At Bluebird Care Coleraine, we can assist you in managing your Self Directed Support budget to ensure that you remain in control of your care.  We  can offer you choice and flexibility in our care and support services, and we will work with you to tailor a care and support plan that ensures that you receive the care you need, when you want it.
