The Corporate Director of Adult and Community Services is Anna McCreadie.
The vision for Adult and Community Services:
Adult and Community Services will ensure adults of all ages and abilities who live in Suffolk have opportunities to access leisure activities, learning or work that assist them to develop and sustain their economic, health and social well being, remain independent, and exercise choice and their right to dignity in a safe environment.
Roles and responsibilities
The Adult and Community Service Office (ACS) works in partnership with health services, local councils, the independent, voluntary and private sectors and our colleagues in other areas of the county council, especially the Children & Young People's Service Office.
Services commissioned or provided by ACS include:
- access to care services
- accommodation for vulnerable people
- adult learning and skills
- employment and economic well being
- libraries, archives, museums, and the arts
- safeguarding of vulnerable adults
- specialist support for people at home
Information on other support services, organisations and sources of help can be found on our MyLife website.
Supporting Lives, Connecting Communities
Suffolk County Council’s model of working called Supporting Lives, Connecting Communities (SLCC) is based on providing people with:
- help to help themselves and find information or solutions to meet their needs
- help to live independently at home for longer
- help to regain independence by offering immediate, short-term help
- ongoing support for those people who need it.
