SELF-DIRECTED SUPPORT NETWORK
WHO WE ARE
This is the website for our global network on Self-Directed Support.
Our network is made up of organisations who are leading work in their home country or region on self-directed support, particularly those working alongside people with intellectual disabilities and their families. Our goal is to work in partnership with other important European and International bodies, especially those led by disabled people, and to help ensure we can achieve citizenship for all.
Self-directed support is the name for a system of support that puts people in control of their support and means:
Confidence - people know their voice will be heard
Control - people shape their support to fit their own life
Connections - people grow strong relationships of love and power
Contribution - people share their gifts and help create a better world
Directing your own support is a human right and it is based on the principles established by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
