What happens when you listen? The Scottish Experience of self-directed support and user involvement Dee Fraser Providers & Personalisation Coalition of Care and Support Providers in Scotland
Today A very short overview of service change How well did we listen in the past? Self-directed support and listening Scottish provider experiences Faye’s story- from tradition to fully user led day services (video) What now?
1990: from institution to community Moved out of institutions Mixed economy of care Person centred planning/care developing in learning disability Recovery model Independent Living Movement (physical disability) lobbying for Direct Payments.
2000: is it real community? Transition to community positive More visible in society Some people still isolated (individualism) re-create the institution? “Service land”
2010: choice and control? Changing Lives: review of social work Personalisation Low take- up of direct payments- why? Self-directed support strategy Self-directed support legislation (2013)
About the SDS Act Person to be offered four options Direct payment Individual budget Arrange service Mixture of the above Applies to all care and support groups** Children Young People Carers Principles based: Involvement, collaboration and assistance Participation and Dignity
What it means for user involvement Person becomes the purchaser ‘Consumer’ levers Outcomes focus Support provider will market to the person (not the local authority)
The Provider Conundrum “Managing yesterday’s services today whilst developing new ways of listening and responding to tomorrow’s customer – and accepting (far) less money for doing it.”
Types of “involvement” Tell: this your service-take it or leave it… Sell: this is your service- it’s great! Consult: what do you think of the service? Involve: tell us what you need…and we’ll listen Empower: we’ll work with you to help you find your voice Lead: over to you…tell us what you want/need and we’ll act…
So what’s an outcome? The change or difference made by the support a person receives. Input: support worker + time + funding Activity: going to the local gym Outcomes: increased physical fitness; increased connection to the community
Peer to Peer Quality Checkers at Inclusion
User- led strategic planning at CrossReach
User led mental health recovery – Penumbra
User- led day activities at Key Community Supports (In Faye’s words)
And most of your actions are based on incomplete knowledge and you really don't know what it is all about, or what the purpose of the world is, or know a great deal of other things. It is possible to live and not know. Richard Fenyman What will happen next?
