Self-Directed Funding (SDF) is a way some governments provide financial support to people with intellectual disabilities. Under the Self-Directed Funding model, a person centred plan is developed for the individual, reflecting the individual’s needs and goals.

A budget is built based on the plan, and the funding is attached to the individual. Funding can also be sent to a parent/support person, or team acting on the person’s behalf. The person with a disability can, if they wish, receive money directly from the government to purchase the supports and services that they choose.

Our Objectives for SDF

  • To continue to work with the government and other stakeholders in the development of SDF as an alternate support option.
  • To conduct research that will address specific questions relating to SDF practices and policies.
  • To build public awareness of SDF.
