Cornwall Council asked for residents’ views as their support services that are provided to help them live well as they grow older goes under review.
The contract for the Council’s adult social care prevention services for people with low-level needs will end in 2019. The end of the contract offers the Council an opportunity to decide which of the services should be renewed that will best meet local needs.
Cornwall Council have said there is no decision to cut any services at this initial stage. The ageing population in Cornwall is set to grow in the next decade and the Council say choosing services that help people to stay independent for longer is a priority.
Rob Rotchell, Cornwall’s portfolio holder for adults, said: “The end of the current contract provides us with an opportunity to make sure the services we commission deliver what people have told us they want – to take more responsibility for their own wellness.
“After listening to a wide range of views a plan has been developed and we are now asking whether we have got this plan right.”
