Come and discuss adult social care

EVERYONE who uses adult care services, or is a carer, or supports wellbeing or social care needs, is invited to attend an important interactive meeting to discuss adult social care on Monday 16th October at Melksham Assembly Hall, 1-15pm -2-15pm.

The meeting will be followed by the Melksham Seniors’ film matinee.

Organisers of the meeting are particularly interested in hearing from: • People who use adult care services • Carers • People/ organisations/ services involved in supporting local people with their general wellbeing or social care needs.

Wiltshire Council say that protecting the most vulnerable people in our communities is one of the council’s key priorities.

Adult social care in Wiltshire is going through significant changes to be able to meet rising demand now and in the future, and the meeting will be a forum to talk to people living here about those changes and obtain their views.

Wiltshire Council says, “We want our county’s adult care to be the very best in the country, supporting independent lives in thriving and resilient communities.

“We believe there are opportunities for local communities to be more involved in supporting people locally, for example by addressing social isolation and loneliness so people feel a part of their community and able to contribute.

“We also believe the way we provide adult social care can be improved and we want to share with you what we are proposing to do and why.

“We also desire your input so please join us and let us hear your views.”
