Please note that the consultation has been extended, and will now close on 4 August 2019.

Birmingham City Council is consulting on its draft Day Opportunities Strategy and proposed draft service model.

The consultation commenced on 8 April 2019 and runs until 6 July 2019. It is a formal 90 day public consultation. The consultation has been extended, and will now close on 4 August 2019.

The purpose of the consultation is to give people the opportunity to consider the proposals set out in the draft Day Opportunities Strategy for Adult Social Care and the draft Day Service Model as outlined in the draft strategy.

Day Opportunities benefit approximately 1600 citizens with a wide range of support needs including older people, people with learning disabilities, autism, physical disability, and people with mental ill health across the city. Current services are delivered directly by the Council as well as by approximately 60 independent organisations.

The Council recognises that people value day opportunities and the Adult Social Care Draft Day Opportunities Strategy aims to provide a set of design principles to support the proposed further development of day opportunities in Birmingham, to ensure there is sufficient provision and that it is accessible for those that need it.

You can give us your view in the following ways:


  • Attend a public consultation meeting or provider event if you are a current or future provider.
  • For citizens and carers who attend council run day centres, there are scheduled meetings at your centre. Speak to day centre staff for details.

To reserve your place at a public or provider consultation event, use relevant link.

Book onto a public consultation event on Eventbrite - there are three additional events for July and August.

Book onto provider consultation event on Eventbrite - one additional event in June.


  • complete the consultation questionnaire. This can be done online or using a paper copy.

Consultation documents

The following consultation documents have been available since 8 April 2019. Paper copies will also be available at each event.
