Skills for Self-Directed Support



The SKILLS project is about self-directed support - letting people with disabilities choose how they receive care. It is about putting the person with a disability into the driver's seat and giving them the power to choose their own care.

This online course contains e-books, videos, and other content. Join and learn how self-directed support works.
