Authors: John Dalrymple and Keith Etherington

This new publication from In Control Scotland argues that resource allocation systems are a vital part of any genuine system of self-directed support; and that resource allocation systems that provide upfront information about the size of the budget likely to be available, remain uniquely empowering of individuals and families wishing to maximise personal control and creativity throughout the process.
