Cosgrove Care Self-Directed Support

Cosgrove has been supporting people for over 50 years and we can support you in a range of ways, whether it be to manage your finances, use public transport or ensure active participation in the local community.

What is self-directed support?

Self-directed support is about being in control of the support you need to live your life your way. It offers choice, flexibility and supports you to realise your hopes for the future.

SDS allows you control and flexibility to arrange and organise your support yourself through 4 options:

  • Direct Payment
  • Individual Service Fund
  • Arranged Services
  • Mixed Budget

Cosgrove Self-Directed Support is an impartial service which will give you all the information you need to choose what is best for you and your family.

When we meet with you, we will help you to make an informed choice about what support you believe will help make life easier for you. We will also discuss your individual care budget and how you would like your support provided. We can help you to agree on a support plan to guide what money, services or equipment you need.

If you choose Cosgrove to provide your support, we will agree when this will start and how you might wish to be involved in recruiting the staff you need.

We can review your support on an ongoing basis and respond to any changes as quickly as possible.
