What we do
Adult and Community Services (ACS) works with adults, young people moving into adulthood and people with physical and learning disabilities to develop better outcomes in people’s lives and help them to live as independently as possible.
We work in partnership with:
- health services
- local councils
- the independent, voluntary and private sectors
- the Health and Wellbeing Board
We also work with colleagues in other areas of the county council, especially Children and Young People's Services.
Adult and Community Services supports or commissions services including:
Councillor Beccy Hopfensperger, Cabinet Member for Adult Care.
- Sue Cook as Executive Director of People Services
- Georgia Chimbani, Corporate Director of Adult and Community Services
Our aims, vision and values
Our vision is to be a good social care service, working in new ways with partners to develop better outcomes in people’s lives.
Health and Care Integration
We work closely with Health colleagues, joining up services within the community at the Connect sites and through our Sustainability and Transformation Plan (PDF, 1MB).
This improves outcomes for people and reduces pressure on Accident and Emergency and avoidable hospital admissions.
