A new consultation has been launched by Cheshire West and Chester Council to look at how adult learning disability and autism services are provided in the borough and how they can be improved.

Services being consulted on include:
  • Day care services
  • Outreach services (also known as home care or domiciliary care)
  • Supported living services
  • Short term care also known as "step up/step down provision"
  • Short break services (also known as respite services)
  • Residential and nursing care services
Councillor Val Armstrong, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Public Health said: "This consultation will help us to ensure that people with learning disabilities and/or autism receive good quality community services across the borough.

"If you are a person aged 16 or over living with a learning disability and / or autism or care for someone living with a learning disability and / or autism we want to hear from you.
