Transforming Adult Social Care
Our ambition is aspiring to be one of the best Adult Social Care departments by citizens, colleagues, partners and providers and by the Department of Health and Social Care and the Care Quality Commission in their assurance processes.
Adult Social Care within the county is transforming; reflecting the changing marketplace, local aspiration to support people to live independently and emerging local and national good practice and requirements of the Care Act 2014. Over the last four years the council’s Adult Single Programme has provided the structure for that transformation. This has particularly been through the development of a strengths-based ‘three tier conversation’ practice model but changes also reflect work that’s taken place with communities and with other system partners including Housing.
