From May 2013 – February 2014 LGiU worked in partnership with social care provider Mears to deliver a series of roundtables for our Adult Social Care Thought Leader Series. This publication brings together in one place the notes from the series.
To mark the 30th anniversary of LGiU we asked contributors from across the local government world to tell us how they thought councils would be different 30 years from now.
This is the final report of an LGiU project, supported by the Mears Group, which looked at how social landlords are engaging with their tenants on the ground.
LGiU with the support of Mears and The British Red Crossed worked with Camden Council to pilot a new approach to mapping preventative budgets against one of the council’s key outcomes from the Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework: to keep older people living independently for longer
LGiU and the Electrical Safety Council have worked together on this report to investigate how councils are engaging with the private rented sector and the challenges and opportunities they face in supporting better conditions.
This report, supported by Partnership, provides an update to the LGiU’s 2011 report Independent Ageing, which assessed local authority support for older people making decisions about choosing and paying for care and support.
