We asked for your views to help inform and shape the development of our draft Independent Living Strategy 2023 – 2027 (PDF).
The purpose of the Strategy is to set out headline priorities for the next five years for supporting independent living for young people in transition to adulthood, adults and older people with social care needs.
Recognising that barriers to living independently reach beyond adult social care, the draft strategy first considered universal themes that can impact a person’s opportunity to live independently, including information and advice, health and housing.
It also considered specific priorities for supporting independent living, across seven ‘in focus’ areas. This included specific consideration of:
- People with learning disabilities
- Autistic people
- People with mental health support needs
- Older people with care and support needs
- People with physical and/or sensory impairment
- People with long term conditions
- Unpaid carers
Who could participate
Those who live, work and study in the borough, as well as representatives from the voluntary and community sector and any other organisations.
