Cumberland Council invites views on Adult Social Care

Share your views on Adult Social Care

Cumberland Council is inviting anyone who has lived experience of accessing Adult Social Care services, whether that be for yourself or someone you support, either now or in the past, to share their views on Adult Social Care.

They are hosting two public drop in sessions this week:

  • Carlisle Library, Thursday, 8 February, 9am - 5pm
  • Workington Library, Friday, 9 February, 9am – 4.30pm

Led by the Council’s Advanced Practice Lead Team, these in-person sessions will provide an interactive platform for those with lived experiences in accessing Adult Social Care to engage directly with professionals.

For those unable to attend in person, there is also the opportunity to participate through an online survey. The survey is designed to capture diverse perspectives and ensure a comprehensive understanding of community needs. To complete the online survey go to Share your views on Adult Social Care - Cumberland Council - Citizen Space.

The insights gained from both the in-person sessions and the online survey will play a pivotal role in shaping the direction of Adult Social Care services in Cumberland. Cumberland Council encourages active participation from the community, ensuring a collaborative approach to creating meaningful and impactful changes.

Councillor Lisa Brown, Cumberland Council Executive Member for Adults and Community Health, said;

"The Advanced Practice Lead Team is dedicated to fostering collaboration and engaging with our community to develop social care practices that truly make a difference. Our residents’ views are integral to this.

“Cumberland Council are committed to putting health and wellbeing at the heart of everything we do. We want to deliver excellent Adult Social Care services now and in the future. Together we will deliver services that are not only of the highest quality but also genuinely centred around the needs and strengths of individuals."
