Self-Directed Support aims to set out a cultural shift around the delivery of support and it recognises that people have the right to choice. This suggests that a care/support plan may aim to manage risk in as safe a way as is possible while still accepting that the adult has the right to self-determine how he/she lives their life.

In this case the support plan requires to be monitored and reviewed under Adult Protection Procedures to ensure that the plan is effective or if there is a need to revisit the risk/harm to the adult again.
