Your rights - Adult Social Care

In this section you will find links to information about your rights to access care, how to complain, information about advocacy services (for people who may need someone to speak on their behalf) and also about how we safeguard adults in Leeds.

In the Documents section you can read our Market Position Statement. This document is aimed at potential and current service providers, but will be of interest to anyone who wants more detail on how the council works out what adult social care services are needed in Leeds.

It talks about policy, how the demographics and the needs of our residents will change in the future, funding and resource issues and how services may be delivered in the future.

In the Documents section you can also find a Privacy Notice, which lets you know about an anti-fraud initiative that Leeds City Council are taking part in with The Audit Commission. For this initiative, we are providing details of those individuals who are in receipt of direct payments so that they can be compared with information provided by other public bodies. The Privacy Notice provides further information about this initiative and the information that will be shared.

Care Opinion is an independent feedback service where you can share your stories of adult social care. You can comment on your experience, good or bad, but don’t forget it is always best to start by talking with those who provide the care.​ The website is in the external links section on this page​​​​​​​​
