Thanks to all those who took part in the consultation. All responses are currently being considered by the Council and the results will be published on this page as soon as they are available.


The Council is reviewing the Community Independent Living Services. These are groups of voluntary organisations which are funded by the Council to provide support for people with health and social care needs. This includes older people, people with mental health problems, people with learning disabilities, people with physical disabilities and sensory impairments, and people with long term health conditions.

The aim of the Community Independent Living Services is to promote health and wellbeing and to reduce social isolation, thereby enabling people to live more independently and ensuring people do not need to rely so much on services provided by the NHS and social services.

The services provided include:

  • Social groups and lunch clubs for older people
  • Support  for people needing information and advice
  • Peer support and self-help groups,
  • Befriending schemes and other social and support groups.
  • Health and well-being activities
  • Support groups and services for specific managing conditions (Mental health, Dementia and Neurological conditions).

In order to help us plan what is provided, we want to hear from people who currently use any of these services, as well as from people who think they may need or use these services in the future. We are interested in your experience of the services, as well as your ideas of how we can improve what is offered.
