Richard Shepherd's County Councillor's Blog - January 2020
Draft Strategy Consultation
The County Council's Adults and Communities Department delivers library, heritage, adult learning and adult care services to people living in Leicestershire. The Department aims to provide and commission high quality services which enrich the lives of individual people, families and their communities.
To achieve this ambition, the Department has developed a draft Adults and Communities strategy for 2020 – 2024, which brings together the functions of adult social care with those of community and wellbeing services and adult learning services.
The Department is running a consultation about the draft strategy and would like to hear views to help shape its development. The full title of the strategy is "Delivering Wellbeing and Opportunity in Leicestershire 2020 – 2024" and the document is available in the "Current Consultations" section of the County Council's website, together with an online consultation questionnaire. The consultation will close on 22nd March 2020.
The design principles for the strategy are to "enable residents of Leicestershire to achieve the outcomes that matter to them by supporting them in the most cost-effective way, and enabling them to live as independently as possible. This will be achieved by focusing on individual and community strengths along with a focus on individuals achieving their goals.
Included in the document are examples of people who have benefited from support and opportunities provided.
