Changes to daytime support

Published 13 March 2017

From 1 October 2017 services are changing and being replaced by a new Community Support Service.

Health and wellbeing centres and learning disability support services are changing. They are being replaced by a new Community Support Service.

This follows consultation and the subsequent decision made by us.

About the new service

The Community Support Service will provide flexible, person-centred support to meet a wide range of people’s needs, delivered from eight building bases across the county.

We know that change can be difficult and we’ll ensure that people using the services, and their families, are supported and involved in the coming months in shaping the new service.

Before anything changes, everyone using current services will be offered an individual assessment and/or review and support to explore their options. 

Guaranteed to receive a service

Everyone with eligible care needs for daytime support is guaranteed to receive a service, and can choose to receive this from us. For people who are assessed as not having eligible needs, there will still be a range of options available, including buying support from the new council service. 

We understand many people have concerns about these changes and we have addressed these in our consultation response.

We’ll be working with each person using services to support them through the transition, helped by a dedicated team of staff working in partnership with the Community Information Network, and our skilled and experienced staff in the current health and wellbeing centres and learning disability daytime support services.
