Is now the right time for Individual Service Funds? - Blog. It was a pleasure to help draft the Individual Service Fund (ISF) guidance for TLAP, and a welcome source of income at a time when most of my work was focused on voluntary campaigning.

It was also a thought-provoking process, one that forced me to question some of my own work over the past 25 years. I invented ISFs at Inclusion Glasgow in 1996. I set up the organisation primarily to help people with learning difficulties escape from an institution - Lennox Castle Hospital. I was frustrated by the kind of group home services that dominated 'community care', I wanted to show that people could have their own homes, their own support and their own budgets. At this time direct payments was not technically possible, and for many folk it is still hard to see how direct payments really work. Better Lives.

Human rights in health and social care – putting it into practice

These values, among others, are also important measures of success for health and social care services in Scotland. Grounded in the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a comprehensive set of international human rights has since been developed, established and adopted around the world. Some of these have been incorporated directly into Scotland’s domestic laws. Others are set out in international legal obligations that the Scottish Government has a duty to implement.

A Day in the Life - Self-directed Support

I've worked in the Self-directed Support (SDS) policy team in Scottish Government for nearly two years now, progressing legislation through Parliament and helping develop and deliver the policy. My background is public service but not in a health environment. I wanted to see the "bigger picture", to understand how our policy actually worked on a day to day basis and how it impacted on people's lives. I felt that if I could see and hear how SDS worked in practice, by listening and speaking with professionals delivering social care services, as well as the people and families who were accessing the support, it would give me a better understanding.
