Daytime Activities and Opportunities for Older People and Adults with disabilities
We want to give people more choice and control over the support they receive, offering real, personalised opportunities and activities which promote independence, enhance wellbeing and meet the outcomes people want to achieve.
Everyone who receives care and support through the council should receive a review every year and we will soon be reviewing people who currently receive day services looking at their interests, abilities and what is important to them and see if their outcomes can be better met in a community setting. This could be going to a club with like-minded people or a café with a group of friends, attending a leisure centre, volunteering, or accessing learning or work opportunities.
We know that daytime care and respite for carers is important and we will be working closely with service users, their carers and families to make sure that the right range of options are in place to meet people’s individual needs.
If you have had a letter about a review of the day services you currently receive and you have any queries, you can see our frequently asked questions or telephone 01305 221016. If you have not received a letter, it means you're not affected by this review.
If you need support to express your views and wishes advocacy may help you.
You can find a list of services in our Adult Care Directory.
