₤3 million investment into care for the vulnerable

WIRRAL Council is investing almost ₤3 million towards improving Residential Care, Home Care and Supported Living within the borough. The Council aims to make sure there is a range of high quality, appropriate services which offer people choices for their care needs. The investment of ₤2.9 million, from April 2017, will help secure these services.

Cllr Christine Jones, Wirral's Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, said:- "Choice, quality and availability of care services is vital. When people need these services, they are often at their most vulnerable and it is so important they are able to access the type of service they need. We are proposing to invest almost ₤3 million into making sure our residents can access Nursing and Residential Care of the highest quality.  We have consulted with the care providers in the borough, and we believe this investment goes a long way to ensuring a responsive and sustainable market of care options in the borough to support our most vulnerable residents."

In Wirral, around 68,000 residents live with some form of disability and, by 2030, almost a quarter of the population will be over 65.

"Having a disability, or becoming older and frailer, should never be a barrier to living an independent life. Each and every one of our residents deserves to be able to access the support they need, at the right quality, when they need it. Even considering our huge financial challenges at the moment; with ₤45 million to save in just the coming year; I am delighted we have one again demonstrated our commitment to our vulnerable residents and our 20 Pledges by investing in these vital services." said Cllr Jones.

Cabinet will consider a report proposing the investment a meeting, that is due to be held on 27 March 2017.
