The Deal for Adult Social Care and Wellbeing

The Deal for Adult Social Care and Wellbeing is our approach to adult social care and is a radical change in how we work.

Instead of looking at residents as a collection of needs and problems, we will view everyone as unique individuals who have strengths, assets, gifts and talents.

We will support people to live the best life they can, rather than fitting them into a inflexible range of traditional and expensive services. 

We will:

  • Have conversations with residents in the borough to better understand what you can do, rather than what you can't do
  • Develop help in the community by working together with groups and organisations, supporting them to support you
  • Develop and embrace new ways of working by allowing and supporting our workforce to be innovative and creative in providing services.
