Case Studies

In this short film directed and produced by Carers Trust Scotland and funded by Scottish Government, Gillian Corbett from Dumfries, a Mum of two young adults living with Fragile X syndrome shares her experience of the challenges and benefits of using Option 2 under Self-directed Support (SDS). She explains how this helped her, and her son to gain more choice and control of his social care support. She puts forward a convincing argument to carers to seek out information and support from their local Network Partner Carers Centre about SDS and tells us about the freedom it brought to her whole family. Gillian now provides information and training on SDS to other carers in Dumfries and Galloway.
