Penumbra - Self Directed Support Project

Mental health charity, Penumbra, are committed to supporting people to look forward to mental wellbeing with recovery focused support.

Self directed support (SDS) became law on 1 April 2014 and they believe it gives people more choice, control and the empowerment to live the lives they want to live.

SDS allows people, their carers and their families to make informed choices on what their support looks like and how it is delivered, making it possible to meet agreed personal outcomes. 

As part of their SDS project, Penumbra have compiled stories of individuals personal experiences of SDS.
