Rutland County Council has approved a new Adult Social Care (ASC) strategy which establishes key priorities and approaches to be taken when supporting adults with care and support needs over the next four years.

The strategy was designed to take in to account the needs of Rutland’s community and the Council’s statutory duties, whilst preparing for potential reforms in the future and the growing needs of the County.

The vision for Rutland’s ASC is ‘Live your best life: supporting you in the place you call home, where you feel safe, valued and part of your community’. The vision connects to the strategy’s four key priorities, which are:

Safe

All adults should be supported in a way which promotes their dignity, rights and overall wellbeing. Which includes supporting people’s safety and intervening in situations where vulnerable adults require protection in line with our Adult Safeguarding duties

Community

Providing accessible options for people to access preventative support which connects them to our local community resources, directing people to good quality information, advice and guidance which supports people’s wellbeing

Valued

To provide the best possible service for people of Rutland, recognising the importance of our skilled ASC professionals through investing in development and learning to provide people with the best quality service

Home

Focussing on helping people to stay, return or find a home as quickly and safely as possible through effective support, acknowledging that home can mean different things for different people.

"It is our priority within Adult Social Care to support people to achieve the best life possible in line with their views, wishes and preferences. This new strategy outlines just how we aim to achieve this over the next four years and sets out our commitment to people within the community and staff within Adult Social Care."

Councillor Diane Ellison, Cabinet Member for Adults and Health
