How adult care works main

We offer a wide range of services both directly and in partnership with others. We involve the users of our services, their families and other interested parties in our decision making.


Need an Advocate to help you

The advocate page will give you more information about what advocates can do and how they can support you have your say. There are many different types of advocacy services but an advocate is generally independent and free from conflicts of interest. 

Have your say

In the have your say section you can find information on how we:

  • run our consultations
  • work together to produce our services with you.

You can tell us about a service that was not what you expected, or where you have received a good service through our complaints and praise process.

We can provide information and contacts to advocates. You can join one of the organisations or groups that contribute to decisions about our services.
