Our Adult Social Care Strategy sets out the vision for social care services in Rutland up to the year 2020.
It also sits alongside a number of complementary strategies such as Rutland's Better Care Fund plan, which is working to integrate social care with health services to help people to remain well and independent for longer.
Our overriding aim is to enable and encourage people and communities to live healthier, more independent lives and to do this in a way that means they have to rely on us less.
Our goal is to:
- Enable individuals and families within our community to achieve their full potential and be safe from harm
- Target services at the most vulnerable and those in greatest need
- Integrate services more closely with the Health and Voluntary, Community and Faith (VCF) Sectors in a way that supports independent living
- Be clearer about what individuals, families and our community can expect
- Focus on finding different ways to do things rather than reduce or remove services
- Adopt an early help and prevention approach
