Adult Social Care day centres consultation: 'Your day, Your say'

About the consultation

The council wants the best quality of life for all its citizens. As a part of this, we are committed to improving our day centres for adults with disabilities, balanced with the need to be more efficient.

Following the COVID-19 pandemic, the way people access day centres changed significantly locally and nationally. Like many councils, we continue to face a significantly challenging financial situation and are required to make considerable budget savings across all our services.

Our consultation called ‘Your day, Your say’ opens on Tuesday 7 May 2024 and closes on Tuesday 9 July 2024.

While savings have been announced, no decisions have been made about what the day centres will look like in the future. The consultation outcomes will help inform decisions that will be taken by the council after it has ended in September 2024.

The consultation is aimed at ensuring the council’s Adult Social Care day centres provide appropriate support, in an appropriate setting that provides citizens with access to their local community, enabling them to thrive and reach their full potential.

The purpose of the consultation is to make sure that you have a chance to tell us your views on the day centre proposals.
