In 2016 we developed a sustainable model for delivering daytime support to meet people’s needs now and in the future. This included:
- supporting people to live well in their communities
- providing some additional tailored support to people who need this
- ensuring that a range of options are available for people with more complex needs to choose from, using their personal budgets or own resources.
There remained a need to continue to support people to live well in their local community, taking part in a range of locally available opportunities. Our aim was to reduce loneliness and social isolation by supporting individuals and communities to support each other.
Oxfordshire’s voluntary sector delivers excellent support to many vulnerable people; and the majority do so without funding from us. As part of the outcomes from the daytime support review, we introduced voluntary sector funding.
