Residents urged to help shape adult care services

Local people who use social care or wellbeing services are being urged to give their views on what works well and what could be improved.

The consultation, part of a review of services through Hackney Council’s Transformation of Adult Social Care Programme, gives residents the opportunity to influence the kinds of services that will be commissioned in future.

The review will cover services from the Council and local organisations, including advocacy, counselling, information and advice, and healthy living.

Cllr Jonathan McShane, Cabinet Member for Health and Community Services, said: “Adult social care is changing to give people more choice and control over the support they receive. This consultation allows local people to tell us what services they like and will help make sure there is a range of excellent support that local people can benefit from.”

The consultation runs until Thursday, 31 March. To take part, visit www.hackney.gov.uk/trasc-info-and-advice; email trasc@hackney.gov.uk, or call 020 8356 3966 for more information.
