Have your say on Solihull's adult social care plan

Sarah Mason 29th Jun, 2022

VIEWS are being sought on Solihull Council’s five-year plan for Adult Social Care.

The council wants to hear from residents on plans to make long-term changes to adult social care in the borough to comply with the government’s social care reform.

The draft plan also details how Solihull Council plan to offer residents help include home adaptations so they can stay independent at home for longer.

The final plan will be published in the autumn.

Councillor Tony Dicicco, cabinet member for Adult Social Care and Health, said: “We’ve got some long-term changes coming up in adult social care.

“These include government reform of the amount people will have to pay for personal care during their lifetime (known as the care cap) and the reintroduction of adult social care inspections by the Care Quality Commission.

“We are also developing our offers to Solihull residents, such as helping people to adapt their homes so they can stay independent for longer. And we are improving services for specific groups including carers, people living with dementia and people with autism.

“We want to make sure our plan includes what matters to the people we support, their carers and families, our staff, NHS and voluntary sector partners.

“I would encourage everyone with a personal or professional interest in adult social care to give their feedback via the survey. We will also be running sessions where people can share their views and help us develop the best plan possible.”

The draft plan and survey, which is open until August 5, are available here.

Paper copies of the plan and survey are available in libraries and Community Advice Hubs.
