Dundee Carers Centre’s Self-Directed Support Team (SDS) have received 3 year funding through Inspiring Scotland’s ‘Support in the Right Direction’ (SiRD) fund to provide independent support, advice and information to people using social care and their carers.

The funding started on 1 April 2024, and Self-Directed Support Team (SDS) will receive a share of up to £9.2million funding from Scottish government across 3 years.

We are delighted to receive this funding from the Scottish Government through Inspiring Scotland. This will allow us to continue supporting people to make informed choices about their social care support and how it is delivered
