FOI Request Self Directed Support for Children
Please provide all versions of criteria used to decide on Self-Directed Support applications for (a) 3-5 year old and (b) 5-8 year old children, and the date on which each of these came into force since April 1, 2014 until present.
We assess all children and young people, who have a disability or are affected by disability, in line with current legislation as set out in the Children (Scotland) Act (1995) and the Social Care (Self-directed Support) (Scotland) Act 2013. All assessments are oriented within GIRFEC and children’s planning processes. We do not differentiate subject to age.Please find attached our Self Directed Support Questionnaire which is completed during the assessment process HERE
