One of Cornwall Council’s main priorities is to make sure everyone in Cornwall can start well, live well and age well in vibrant, safe and supportive communities. Communities that everyone belongs to and feels connected to, where no one is invisible or left behind.

We will focus on enabling people to lead independent and fulfilled lives through a shift towards prevention, and a co-ordinated equal partnership between people, families, the voluntary sector and statutory service providers.

Please tell us your views about our draft strategies.

Over the past years we have been talking to people about the services they provide and they receive. Based on what you told us and after analysing the data, policies and trends we have drafted two new adult social care strategies: Maximising Independence and Better Lives which form our Adult Social Care Commissioning Strategy for 2022 – 2026. Our collective vision is to ensure that people can get the right care, in the right place at the right time to help, prevent, reduce or delay the need for ongoing support and maximise their independence.

This strategy for ‘Maximising Independence’ is our universal offer for people who use Adult Social Care services. The primary focus of this strategy will be support for older people and people with physical disabilities and/or sensory loss.

Strategy for ‘Better Lives’ focuses on support for people with learning disabilities, neurodiversity and poor mental health.

Please complete this short questionnaire to tell us your views about the above strategies.

    Please complete our short survey to give your views on adult social care and support services. This survey will close on 30 September 2021.

    This information will help us to understand how people currently feel about the adult care and support services they receive now or what they might want to receive in the future. This information will be used to help Cornwall Council develop plans for how they will support people in the future so that they can live as independently as possible in their own homes for as long as possible. 

    When we have developed plans based on what people tell us we will ask you again for your views.
