About Us

Cornerstone SDS is an advice and information service based in the Aberdeenshire area. We offer support by helping you to understand SDS (Self-Directed Support) and the care available to you. Through providing guidance, we can help you make the most of your care package by finding solutions that best meet your needs.

We have a team of advisors who cover Aberdeenshire as well as Aberdeen City. Our advisors are here to help you make sense of self-directed support and will be available to support you for the duration of your care package.
