Solihull Council’s five year plan for adult social care has been approved. The plan addresses changes and challenges ahead, including significant national reform and the reintroduction of adult social care inspections by the Care Quality Commission.
Councillor Tony Dicicco, cabinet member for Adult Social Care and Health, explains why the plan is needed now: “It was important for us to set out how we will approach this period of change and our priorities over the next five years. We have outlined how the Council will continue to improve support for adult residents and carers in the borough, building on the good services we already provide.
He continues: “The plan also highlights our new ‘Get Involved’ approach, ensuring that everyone who wants to can play a more active role in helping shape the future of adult social care services in Solihull.
“Over the summer we carried out extensive engagement work to make sure the plan includes what matters to the people we support, alongside carers and families, staff, NHS colleagues, and voluntary sector partners. Thank you to everyone who shared their views.”
