Why are we doing this?

Wrexham Council believes that listening to and involving customers is an essential part of improving our services.  It helps to improve efficiencies and the quality of service we provide to our customers.  It gives you the opportunity to agree how your homes and local environments are managed, what services and improvements are needed, what our priorities should be and how we work together to achieve these.  Current activities in Housing show that tenants can and do make a difference to how the service is delivered and we are keen to engage with a wider range of tenants and leaseholders.  Our Tenant and Leaseholder Participation Strategy is currently being developed for the next 3 years.  This document is about you and is your opportunity to tell us how you want the council to engage and interact with you.  Your input into this strategy is vital in order to make it meaningful and relevant, and to enable us to reach and engage with as many tenants and leaseholders as possible.  As part of the development of the strategy we are seeking your views and have put together the following questionnaire, which we hope you will complete and return in the pre-paid envelope.

 

In the meantime, if you’d like to get more information about getting involved, please call Carol Tinsley, our Tenant Participation Project Officer, on 01978 298993.

Why are we doing this?

Local Councils have less money to spend on services because Government (UK and Wales) are giving us less money in our budgets every year.  Wrexham Council has already saved around £18 million in the last three years, and we think we’re going to have to find another £13 million over the next two years. Overall, we have had to make savings of £52 million since 2008.

We want to be able to deliver good services to you, and we’re always looking for ways to get better at what we’re doing.  We are working hard to become a more modern organisation and to make sure that we have the right staff and services in place to meet the needs of local people. 

We are trying to make savings which don’t affect the public in a bad way, but as we have less and less money to spend every year, it’s getting harder.  We are also given new responsibilities by Welsh Government every year, which all cost money and time (e.g. changes in Social Services).

Why are we doing this?

Wrexham Adult Social Care Department recognises that the right information and advice; given at the right time, can empower people to achieve positive outcomes in their lives.

Our vision is that Wrexham citizens are able to get information and advice about how to improve their independence and wellbeing, when they need it, in the way they need it, wherever they look for it.

We want our citizens to have the information and support they need to live safe, active, healthy lives and to be able to live independently for longer.  A key aspect of achieving this outcome is for citizens to have easy access to Information, Advice & Assistance.  Section 17 of the Social Services and Wellbeing Act (Wales) 2014 places a duty upon the Local Authority to establish an Information, Advice and Assistance service.

View more details for consultation Developing and Expanding Shared Lives Services in Wrexham Developing and Expanding Shared Lives Services in Wrexham Wrexham County Borough Council 31 May 2017 13 Jul 2017
Why are we doing this?

Wrexham Adult Social Care Department is looking to expand the ways in which it provides support to people with eligible needs in Wrexham.

People who use our services tell us that they wish to be cared for within their own homes and communities, rather than in residential care. One of the services we currently provide to older people is called ‘Shared Lives, Day Support’, which provides day time support to a group of up to 3 people in the home of a registered Shared Lives Carer. Shared Lives Carers are registered to provide personal care, as well as befriending support and support people to access their local community. This service is currently available to people aged over 65 years of age.

We would like to expand this service, to enable greater numbers of people, across all our client groups to access the support it has to offer. We are also interested in developing an Adult Placement in Wrexham, which can be accessible to all persons with eligible social care needs. Adult Placement is where an individual lives, on either a temporary or permanent basis, with a Shared Lives Carer/ family. This type of service is often used as an alternative to residential care or to enable people to begin their independent living journey. There is currently no Adult Placement Scheme in Wrexham. Within this pack there are some information sheets which provide some brief information on what this type of service looks like, in terms of who can access it, and what it costs for the individual.
