SDS and Penumbra release Evaluation Report 2018


Self Directed Support (SDS) and Penumbra have released their Evaluation Report summarising their work in 2018.

It showcases key results of Penumbra implementing Self Directed Support.

Self Directed Support became law on 1st April 2014, and we believe it empowers people by giving them more control over their care and the life they want to live.

SDS allows people, their carers and their families to make informed choices on what their support looks like and how it is delivered, making it possible to meet agreed personal outcomes


The 2018 report shows
that of over 1500 people supported by Penumbra, 255 accessed our services via SDS. An increase of nearly 20% on last year.

There is now 28 Wellbeing Points across Scotland, over 150% increase in the number of Wellbeing points compared to July 2017.
