About us

Unlocking the potential of self-directed support in Scotland

In Control Scotland is a registered charity and a not for profit organisation.  We work with organisations, health and social care partnerships and people across Scotland to support the development of a sustainable system of self-directed support. We provide training, development and consultancy and share what we learn to improve the experience of self directed support for everyone.  We are also part of a wide community of organisations in Scotland, the United Kingdom and internationally who share the same goals and values.  Our organisation consists of our Board Members, Associates and our small ICS Team

Our Story

In Control Scotland was formed to promote the development of self-directed support and individual budgets in Scotland. We provided a framework to bring together existing good practice and introduced new ways of working which helped people and supported everyone involved in meeting the challenges.  In 2009, In Control Scotland was formally constituted as an independent organisation linked to developments elsewhere as part of In Control international.
