'Supporting Lives Connecting People' - Survey

Closed 11 Aug 2017

Opened 7 Jul 2017

Overview

Our proposed approach to delivering adult social care in the future

We need to make changes so that we can continue to provide good quality support to people with adult social care needs within our available resources.

We want to reach people at an early stage and help them be as active and independent as possible and to achieve the things that matter to them in their life. We want to meet with people, their families and carers in local settings to talk about the support they need and to help them make the best use of their strengths, including family and community networks. 

The new approach is based on local and national best practice and we’ve taken account of what our customers and carers have told us about their experiences over the past years. We are currently testing this approach in some areas of the County.

This approach will depend on a wide range of available support and activities in local communities. The voluntary and community sector will therefore be important partners for us.

We are carrying out a variety of engagement activities to gather views from a wide range of individuals and organisations. This is to help us make a decision about how the County Council will deliver adult social care in the future.

Thank you for taking the time to participate.

Mark Howell

Director of Adult Operations

 

Why We Are Consulting

Because we are considering changing the way we deliver adult social care we need to hear a wide range of views from our customers and their families, carers, residents, and all those who have an interest in adult social care. This will include voluntary and community organisations, which are our key partners.

The feedback from the survey will be included in a report setting out the findings from our programme of engagement. The report will be published on our website . Hard copies and other formats will be available on request.

The Cabinet Member for Adults and Health will take a decision in autumn this year about how we will deliver adult social care in the future.

We value your comments and I hope you will take a short amount of time to complete this survey. It should take between 5-10 minutes to complete.
