Day Opportunities – Survey

How adult social care day services are provided in North East Lincolnshire is being reviewed. Engagement with local people at all stages of the review will ensure that everyone involved in these services, whether a user, carer or provider, can have their say on proposals and can be involved in shaping any potential improvements for the services in future. 

North East Lincolnshire Council and North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group are working closely with all service provider organisations and users of the day services, and other stakeholders to gather information about current services.

This review is essential to ensure that people’s needs are being met and that people have the choice and access to a range of support in the wider community to benefit their health and wellbeing.

Services should enable people to lead full and meaningful lives. They should provide access to social activities, work and leisure opportunities that help build skills and confidence, develop relationships, and maintain their independence.

Update on the review – December 2021

We are looking at how adult social care day services (this includes Day Centres) are offered in North East Lincolnshire. We want to know what is good, what you would change, and what you would like to see in the future.

Day opportunities (Day Services) take place in the community, they offer people the chance to meet up with others and make friends, take on volunteering roles, access training, learn skills and use leisure and sports facilities.

It is important that people have a choice and can access different support and activities in the community, not just in day services.

We want to hear from people who use these services, those who work in the care services and those who care for service users.  This is your opportunity to tell us what you think, what works well for you and what doesn’t and how the services support you.

Bev Compton, Director of Adult Services explained, “We know that people who use our day centres and other activities on offer value the service, and so do their carers. A high proportion of people using the service have been doing so for a long time and whilst that may be appropriate for some people, it may not be for others as everyone’s needs are very different. This review of services is essential to ensure that those differing needs are being met and we are doing the best we can for those that use day services.”
