What the Gloucester Team say about working in Adult Social Care:

Our Team

We support adults living in Gloucester to find their own solutions to remain independent or to support people to regain control of their lives, staying by their side until we are no longer required. We work alongside our partners and other agencies, including the NHS, housing, service providers and local charities, to support adults who need a plan for their short term or long-term care and support.

We strive to provide the highest quality service we can to adults and their carers, utilising their strengths to help connect them to services and opportunities in their local area to promote their well-being. We also ensure that adults at risk of abuse and neglect are protected and empowered.

The people who mainly come into our service are over the age of 18 who have an appearance of care and support needs and who may or may not be at risk of harm. Predominantly these are those with diagnosed physical or cognitive conditions, such as dementia, acquired brain injuries and neurological disorders.

Our Location

Shire Hall is located in the heart of Gloucester City Centre. There are plenty of cafes and shops in the city, all within walking distance. Shire Hall is also situated opposite Gloucester Cathedral where there are benches and outside seating areas available, which is particularly nice during the summer months.

A 10-15 minute walk will take you to Gloucester Quays, an outlet shopping centre with a mix of high street and designer labels as well as a great selection of restaurants.

There is free parking available to those working in the Gloucester Locality, which is only a short walk from Shire Hall. There are also a limited amount of duty spaces available to workers on the Referral Centre and a smaller onsite car park where you can park for 3 hours at a time, which is ideal for days when you have planned visits or external meetings.

Gloucester has an excellent public transport system, with a main bus station with frequent links to its surrounding towns and villages, such as Cheltenham, Stroud and Cinderford. There are also regular bus routes around Gloucester via the City Centre. The train station is also a ten minute walk from Shire Hall, which is perfect if you are planning to commute from another area within the county or from the surrounding areas such as Bristol, Worcestershire or Oxfordshire.
