We are an independent information, support and advice service covering the whole of Fife.

Self Directed Support Options (Fife) was set up by Disabled Person's Housing Service (Fife) in July 2015 as a response to the need for an independent service in Fife that provided information, support and advice to people about self-directed support. With all new referrals and reviews for social care and support going down the self-directed support pathway since 2014 there was a real need for impartial information and advice. 

As an organisation assisting people with disabilities with their housing options it fits well within the organisation as many disabled people looking for housing will also need support to help them manage their tenancy, meet their care and support needs, be as independent as possible and form ties with the local community which is something self directed support can help with. 

We are funded partly through the Scottish Government's Support In The Right Direction fund and partly through Fife Council to provide support to people who choose option 1.
