Have your say: draft commissioning plan for adults with support needs
Bristol City Council is consulting on the future commissioning of ‘help when people need it’ services.
The council is looking to procure these services for two main groups; those aged 18-64 and those aged 55+, as well as other citizens who live in the community and are not supported by the working age adults provision.
A number of events will be taking place in support of the consultation:
Bristol City Hall, Room 1P09, College Green, BS1 5TR Bristol, United Kingdom
Thursday, 25 April 2019 from 14:30 to 15:30 (BST)
Bristol Community Links North, Lanercost Road, BS10 6HZ Avon, United Kingdom
Monday, 29 April 2019 from 10:30 to 11:30 (BST)
The Park Centre, Daventry Road, BS4 1DQ Bristol, United Kingdom
Tuesday, 30 April 2019 from 10:30 to 11:30 (BST)
These services are short term support that people can access quickly to help them get back on their feet after a difficulty. The help that they get is intended to help people stay independent where they live and prevent them from needing longer term care and/or support. It might be help with accessing health care, maximise their finances, budget successfully or to access their community.
At the moment, Bristol City Council spends £6.1 million each year buying these services.
