Overview

This proposal involves the ending of some current prevention and independence services and the development of commissioning plans for new services as part of the Adult Care and Support Prevention and Independence Strategy.  We have already consulted with providers and service users on a lot of this as part of the strategy development between April and August this year.

The proposed new commissioning priorities are:

  1. community-based support services for older people and those with physical disabilities and their carers
  2. A “Rochdale Circle” – a membership organisation that encourages its members to participate and help out with social activities, household tasks and other day-to-day activities.
  3. a handyperson service for vulnerable people
  4. contribution to a volunteer driver’s scheme for people affected by the removal of the subsidised transport service.

 

The indicative saving for this proposal is £109,100

As the proposal will affect service users, we have undertaken an Equality Impact Assessment to identify likely or actual effects on people with protected characteristics.
