Proposed changes to the acquired brain injury outreach service

Closed 21 Sep 2018

Opened 13 Aug 2018


Adult Social Care currently provides short term, low level assistance via its Enablement Service to help people who are below the threshold for care and support. The support includes regaining confidence, developing domestic life skills, advice and information.

The council also has a contract with Headway to deliver low level outreach support to adults with an acquired brain injury. Headway also provides the same type of support as the Enablement Service. The contract ends on 31 March 2019.

The purpose of this consultation is to seek views on proposals to end this contract as it does not support people who meet the threshold for care and support. It also duplicates the support that is available through the Council’s Enablement Service.

What Happens Next

Following the end of the consultation period, we will provide feedback on the findings here.
