Whether you’re someone who uses social care services, a member of staff or a local business or voluntary sector leader, you have the potential to make a positive difference to your own life and the lives of others.
Better Lives for People in Leeds is Adult Social Care’s commitment to unlocking that potential.
It’s about people being released from dependency and having more say in how they live their lives. Against a backdrop of major financial challenge, it’s time to think differently: to break down boundaries between organisations and people, and support ideas that help communities to thrive.
You can download a document from this page called 'local account' which gives you more information on adult social care services in Leeds, and what Better Lives is about.
As part of our approach to help local people with care and support needs to enjoy better lives than before, we have established a group of representatives of local people with care and support needs. These include carers, local service providers and council officers to identify better ways for people to access services which are tailored to their personal needs. The group has identified improving local information and advice as the main area for development. See a copy of the Making It Real development plan in the documents section which can be downloaded from this page
