What is a local account?
Local accounts are annual reports designed to give local residents a clear picture of the achievements we have made in adult social care – how well we are performing, the changes and challenges we are facing and our plans for future improvements. We remain as ambitious as ever in setting plans and getting results that will improve people’s wellbeing and give them independence and control over their lives and the care they choose. This is set against a backdrop of a faster pace of change and greater financial constraints. The introduction of the Better Care Fund brings us opportunities and challenges to deliver more joined up care by working more closely with our health colleagues and South Gloucestershire communities.
Our aims for adult social care continue to complement the Health and Wellbeing Strategy for South Gloucestershire, with an overarching vision for all health and social care: www.ourareaourfuture.org.uk/health-and-wellbeing-board/joint-health-and-wellbeing-strategy
The report is in seven sections:
- Your local area: South Gloucestershire at a glance
- How we met change and challenges in 2015/16
- Facts, figures and performance – delivering the customer journey
- Keeping people safe
- Listening and learning
- Working with our partners
- Our priorities for change 2016 – 2018
