Charity registered in Scotland SC044751
The SDS forum is an independent group of East Renfrewshire residents who choose to take control of their day-to-day care arrangements by directly employing care workers or by commissioning a care agency using Social Work money or ILF.
The Self-Directed Support Forum, East Renfrewshire is a local organisation for anyone who is thinking about directing their own support or that of someone they care for. We also support individuals and families who are already directing an existing social care package.
Our organisation was formed in 2011 by a small collective of service users and carers. Now with funding from the Scottish Government, we have grown into an informed organisation for others to turn to and seek advice, share experiences and feel supported around all aspects of Self-Directed Support.
We are now seeking additional members to join our
Voluntary Board of Trustees
We are keen to attract people to our Board with skills, knowledge and experience in accountancy, finance and law.
As well as our AGM, the board meets 4 times per year with the occasional extra informal meetings being held, as required. The role of Trustee is primarily governance and is a voluntary post. Expenses will be reimbursed.
