Council launches new consultation to help people live safe and well at home for longer

With the ageing population in Cornwall set to grow significantly in the next decade, Cornwall Council is seeking input from residents and service providers on the right service mix to best help people to remain independent for as long as possible.

We want to hear from people about the services they want to keep them healthy and active, keep them independent and allow them to spend time with others. We also want to hear people’s views on how we can provide the right support to homeless people.

With a range of contracted services which the Council manages up for renewal in 2019, the Council wants to make sure that people have access to a range of services which, as well as keeping them happy and healthy, also keep them out of more costly services for longer.

Cornwall Council Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Adults Rob Rotchell said: “The end of the current contract provides us with an opportunity to make sure that services we commission are focussed on delivering what people have told us they want - to take more responsibility for their wellbeing and wellness, be as independent as possible and be part of their local community.

“After listening to a wide range of views a plan has been developed and we are now asking whether we have got this plan right. Whether you are a service user, a provider, or a resident who might be a future user of services, everyone is encouraged to give their feedback and views. We want to make sure our plans are produced with input from residents and partners.”

You can access the survey through the Council’s website. 

The survey closes on 7 September 2018
