  • 22. Trust is critical.
  • 23. 6. Community
  • 24. Self-directed support seeks to move money into community - in different ways.
  • 25. This includes how people take control.
  • 26. • Best support there is • A flexible concept • Facilitation is key • Evolving • NOT commissioned
  • 27. 7. Sustainability
  • 28. Self-directed support demands a new way of managing - NOT the middle
  • 29. Its about citizenship - NOT services
