Scottish Government consultation - Self-Directed Support - LITRG response
Over recent years we have carried extensive research into care and support matters, with particular regard to issues surrounding direct payments. Whilst we believe there are undoubted benefits to recipients of personal budgets, and within them direct payments, they are often lessened by the burden of responsibilities that using these payments brings to them. Addressing these issues could lighten the burden and also ensure that better use is made of available funding.
