Help improve Social Care…

New opportunity to get involved and have your say about social care in RBKC and Westminster … join the Local Accounts Group…. this is an introduction.

We are passionate about involving residents in every aspect of Adult Social Care’s work in Bi-borough. That means helping us design our services, being instrumental in the specifications of new systems, reviewing our day to day work, holding us to account, and celebrating successes with us.

In order to further promote this agenda, we have set up the Local Account Group(LAG) to enable residents to be fully involved with us to do this in a structured and facilitative way. It has got off to a great start with a very engaged and vocal group of residents from a range of backgrounds.

However, we urgently need to recruit and involve more residents to be part of the Group. Can you please suggest any residents who would like to be involved in this important, interesting and empowering forum?. The time commitment would be a meeting once a month, plus additional work in the community and opportunity to do more and be involved in other exciting projects. It’s a great opportunity for the service users to be trained, and paid for their contribution to improving our services.

We’re a working on an Ambition Plan with the group to define their objectives over the forthcoming year. We’re really leading the way with this work and both councils are fully supporting us. It would be great to have more residents on the group so please do put the word.

For more information about the group and what’s involved, please contact Rachel Dickinson, Quality Assurance Manager, atrdickinson@westminster.gov.uk

We are holding an open forum on Friday 1st February at 5 Strand, Room 3.1 @ 11am for people to meet me and the existing members.
