Adult Social Care Review - getting involved in the next stage

The consultation provided some really useful feedback for the review and a new strategy for adult social care. Thank you to all who took the time to respond to the consultation. 

Many of you who responded said you'd like to be involved in the next stage - working togther to turn the strategy into action. Over the last few weeks, we've begun getting in touch and starting our conversations with you over Zoom. See below for what's happened so far and what's to come. 

It's still not too late to get involved. Whether you responded to the consultation but may not have left your contact details or you're new to the review, we'd love you to come and join us if you've got an interest in adult social care. 

Here's some information about the next area of focus that's starting soon and how and when you can join the others who've already signed-up:

We are inviting you to an information session on becoming a member of our coproduction project group. This project group will help develop our commitment to supporting people to live fulfilling independent lives at home, connected to their community and local resources.

As a reminder, this is the information that went with the consultation:

Living the life you want to live - our review of adult social care

We’d like you to help us to develop our adult social care plans for the next five to ten years. This consultation is the first stage of our review, and we would really like to hear your views and understand what matters to you.

Good social care supports people to live the life they want to live. We want to design social care in Sheffield so it’s valued by people, families and communities, and supports everyone who needs it. This means we may need to look at some different ways of working and new models of support.

There are two stages to our review of adult social care:

Stage 1 – setting the commitments

This consultation asks for your views on the proposed vision, principles and commitments in a new Adult Social Care Strategy for Sheffield.

Stage 2 – designing support for the future

We'd then like to work with you and others to get the right kind of care and support in place for the future. You can tell us at the end of this consultation if you want to work with us.

This consultation is for anyone to complete. It is entirely anonymous – however if you would like to speak with someone in more detail then you can provide your contact details at the end.
