About the project
Outside the Box is working with people who can benefit from social care. Social care is the services that help people stay at home, or be more independent, for example.
The Over the Fence project brings together advice and information on how to start getting the sort of services you want.
The advice and tips will include suggestions from people who have recently started getting support. They know how confusing it can feel sometimes, as well as the benefits.
Over the Fence will run to early 2014. By then, there will be a website and practical information that people can go on using. Media Co-op is working with us to develop the website.
The project is funded by the Scottish Government as part of a programme to raise understanding about Self-directed support.
The Social Care (Self-directed Support) Scotland Bill was introduced to the Scottish Parliament on the 29th of February and is now published on the Parliament’s website.
You can access the Bill at:
