What is supported decision making

Supported decision making means to help someone take steps to make their own decisions.

  • Why is supported decision making important?

    Everyone needs support to make decisions.

    Decisions can be small or big, easy or hard.

    This depends on the person who makes the decision, the decision that needs to be made and what else is happening in their life.

    The support can be for long-term goals and everyday choices.

    The support is about what people want, what people need and choose for their own life.

    Supported decision making is important because it is about putting the person and their will and preference at the centre of decision making.
