Support in the Right Direction (SiRD)
Support in the Right Direction is a service hosted by North Lanarkshire Disability Forum and funded by Inspiring Scotland. Support in the Right Direction is for individuals and their carers who are not yet eligible for an individual budget thorough Self-Directed Support, or whose needs are not being met by statutory services. We support people to find help and support in their community.
We work with people to ensure they are engaged, informed, included and empowered to make choices about their support. Support in the Right Direction offers individuals alternatives to paid support. This can be social groups and activities in the local community.
Our dedicated Community Connectors can work with you to find groups and activities that interest you and help make you feel more supported.
The Community Connectors can attend community groups and activities with you for the first time to help make the experience a bit less daunting.
