7 Adults and Communities Three Year Strategic Plan

8 Vision People lead fulfilling and purposeful lives, in welcoming and flourishing communities.

9 Changes to social care National programme of social care change. The Personal Budget has enabled me to look at whats important to me. SP Making fundamental changes to Social care: the way it is organised and the way services are provided.

10 Changes to the NHS The Government upholds the values and principles of the NHS: of a comprehensive service, available to all, free at the point of use and based on clinical need, not the ability to pay. Putting patients and public first Improving healthcare outcomes Increased choice and control Cutting bureaucracy and improving efficiency

11 Local Authorities New Functions Joining up the commissioning of local NHS services, social care and health improvement. Local authorities will therefore be responsible for: Promoting integration and partnership working between the NHS, social care, public health and other local services and strategies; Leading joint strategic needs assessments, and promoting collaboration on local commissioning plans, including by supporting joint commissioning arrangements. Building partnership for service changes and priorities. Local Involvement Networks (LINks) will become the local HealthWatch

12 New Department We provide services and support for adults, to enable them to remain independent and contribute to their communities e.g. Community opportunities Equipment and adaptations Keeping people safe We also provide community services - activities and opportunities for the whole community, children, young people, adults and families e.g. Libraries Service Heritage and Arts Service

13 Economic climate Economic recession There has been a nationwide reduction in Adult Social Care budgets, local authorities have to re-prioritise and re-focus the funds currently available Every public sector organisation facing budget restrictions

14 Five key aims 1.Understanding the needs and aspirations of the people of Leicestershire 2.Developing strong, inclusive, supportive and independent communities 3.Promoting the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities 4.Increasing peoples choice and control 5.Continually improving the way we work with people

15 Key Principles 1.Put people at the centre of everything we do 2.Focus on outcomes and making a difference to peoples lives 3.Meet peoples needs in an effective, equitable and sustainable way

16 How will we realise our vision? The detail of how we will deliver the strategy can be found in the Adults and Communities Departmental Service Plan We will work in partnership with people who receive services, with our communities, with the NHS and other partners. We will explore new ways of delivering services with partners. We will ensure we are as efficient as possible, making the best use of the resources we have.

29 RAS (Resource Allocation System) – A set of questions to work out the persons needs and allocation of money Support plan – Lays out what the person wants to achieve with their life, and what support needs to be in place to do this Personal Budget – Money is allocated to the person to buy the support in their plan Support Plan

30 Types of Personal Budget Cash Payment. This is where money is paid directly to the person or a representative to enable them to buy the support and services they need Managed Budget. This is when people decide that they want the Adult Social Care Department to manage their budget Individual Service Fund. This is where a service provider helps them to arrange and manage their budget and support. A Trust Fund. This is where the money is paid to a group of people who legally manage the money and buy the support on behalf of the person who is not able to do it themselves.

31 Leicestershire County Council need to authorise your plan Decide who will manage your Personal Budget – You, family, organisations, the Council etc. Brokerage – help to find the best services for you Advocacy and support – people who can help you Live your life

32 The support plan is reviewed regularly, the person and their worker can agree when. If the person is not getting what they need the plan can be changed Review
