I joined SDS Forth Valley in 2003 as an Information Officer, when the service was first started. Later in 2003 I went on to gain the post I am in now. I have seen the service develop from a desk with a phone, supporting clients in the Falkirk council area, to what it is now, a fully furnished office with 3 staff members who provide comprehensive support to clients throughout Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannan Council areas.

My principle role is working with clients, ensuring they know enough about Self Directed Support and how it relates to them, so they can make informed choices about their independent living.
