How we spend our budget to support vulnerable adults
When we consulted on our three-year budget up to 2020, we faced tough choices to close funding gaps. People were clear – they did not want cuts to affect people who may be vulnerable due to poor health, disability or difficult circumstances, or who are less able to live as independently as possible in their community.
We listened and responded, making essential services a priority for adults who need them.
Alongside protecting this funding, we’ve been targeting investment to speed up new ways of working – in partnership – that get better results and stop some people needing these services in the first place.
This week we want to update you on some of the great work our staff do so that people who might otherwise be vulnerable can live as independently as possible in their community thanks to our services, our work with their carers, and essential services from our partner organisations.
