Budget 2022-2023 IIA1 Adult Social Care - Continuing to promote independence for people with learning disabilities, Autism or both

We have set out service savings proposals worth £12 million to balance our budget next year, and would like to hear your comments on them. We also have to save £12 million in 2023-24, followed by another £12 million in 2024-25, which is a total of £36 million over the next three years.
Our priority here is to find out what you think about our proposal for continuing to promote independence for people with learning disabilities, Autism or both in 2022-23. Find out more in our video: IIA1 Adult Social Care - Continuing to promote independence for people with learning disabilities, Autism or both.
Here's a summary of what we propose: “In 2016, we consulted on an ambitious proposal to re-shape the way we provide support to people with a learning disability, autism, or both. This proposal included developing significantly more housing and support options that could promote independence for people with a learning disability, autism or both who use social care services. Through this work we created the ‘Continuum of Support’, our way of setting out the range of services and support that is available for people with eligible social care needs and defining the types of support in a way that is understandable to all. We are committed to continuing this work to promote independence for even more people with a learning disability, autism, or both who use adult social care services. We therefore propose to continue this through our savings proposals for 2022-2023 which can be divided into four areas: development of new schemes, night-time support, transitions, and Shared Lives.”

We are consulting on all our proposals between 12 November 2021 and 2 January 2022. Have your say by completing the short survey, or by emailing us at: letstalk@newcastle.gov.uk. We have also produced a PDF copy of our questions, which can be found at the bottom of the page and can be printed off, completed, and returned to us at:  FREEPOST Let’s Talk if this is easier for you or someone you know.

Here is the Integrated Impact Assessment (IIA) for this proposal, a summary of what we propose to do, and the impact we expect it will have: IIA1 Continuing to promote independence for people with learning disabilities, Autism or both 

Please do give us your views!

If you have any questions about this or you need the consultation materials in different formats, such as large print, you can email us at letstalk@newcastle.gov.uk, or write to us at: FREEPOST Let’s Talk

What happens next

We will consult on our draft budget proposals from 12 November 2021 until 2 January 2022. In February 2022, Cabinet will be asked to recommend the post-consultation budget to City Council. City Council will debate and vote on the budget at their meeting in March.

We will publish the final budget proposals, including a report on the consultation findings, on our website: Newcastle City Council
