Hampshire launches commission of inquiry on future of adult social care

Posted on September 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Hampshire County Council has launched its own Commission of Inquiry into the future shape of adult social care. The Commission is intended to provide a platform for national and local speakers, who are experts in their field, to present evidence on the issues of personalisation.

The Commission aims to help shape future services for people in need of support and care, develop a sustainable model for the future, based on the concept of personalisation which can be adopted by Hampshire, and is transferable to other authorities, understand the implications of changing to a new way of working and inform the green paper on the future funding of adults’ social care.

Members of the public, service users, carers, the third sector, the independent sector, public sector organisations and community bodies are all invited to make submissions to the Commission.
