Self-directed support systems - Mind the gap

Workshops to develop a whole systems approach

We are taking a whole systems approach to self-directed support (SDS) implementation. Can taking a whole systems approach work? What resources would the health and social care sector need to help to engage in whole systems thinking? We need your help to explore these questions.

Mind the gap

31 March 2017, 10am to 4pm, Albert Halls, Stirling

In our continuing Adventures In Systems (AS IS) series of workshops we are delighted to welcome Julian Corner from the Lankelly Chase Foundation.

Julian will explain whole systems approaches and help us to consider how this might work from an SDS perspective. The workshop will give participants the chance to think about what’s happening and working well now in their services and how thinking at a systems level can help us work together effectively in future. We will also discuss what resources workers and organisations need to support systems thinking.

We will hear from our colleagues in the Living Well in Communities Team at Healthcare Improvement Scotland about how they are working to support system change in Scotland.


This event is for people working in any part of the health and social care system including: commissioners, finance staff, procurement staff, policy officers, risk compliance officers, legal officers, social workers and their managers, service providers, support organisations, people who use services and their families and friends.

The workshop is free although places are limited so please book early. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Book your place on our eventbrite page.
