Knowsley Adult Social Care – Market Position Statement
Welcome to the first Market Position Statement (MPS) for Adult Social Care in Knowsley. This document is a signal of our commitment to working more closely with organisations that support adults with social care needs. We believe that working together is the only way we can ensure that services develop to meet people’s changing needs and aspirations while also ensuring that adult social care is sustainable now and in the future.
Councillor Steff O'Keeffe, Portfolio Holder for Health and Social Care
Welcome to the Adult Social Care Local Account for 2016 where you will find details of how the Council, our partners and local communities have supported Knowsley residents with care and support needs and their carers over the last year. This document has been produced in partnership with the Knowsley Engagement Forum and people who use services and their carers.
Transforming Adult Social Care – 'The future of Adult Social Care in Knowsley'
Over the next 20 years the percentage of people over 65 will more than double in Knowsley, which means there will be a greater demand on both health and social care. This increased pressure on services will not be sustainable, as Knowsley Council, like so many others, is dealing with unprecedented budgetary cuts in light of Government funding cuts.
