A consultation is running until late December

Plans to ‘transform’ how the council spends taxpayers’ money on adult social care service are going to public consultation.

The council claims changes will see costs cuts and services improve, while generating more income.

Cuts to government grants means Bexley council will have to come self-sufficient in the next four years.

Now, councillors are asking for residents’ thoughts on proposals in three areas - prevention activities and pathways through adult social care, improving the transition of young people to adult social care and charging strategy.

To find out more, and have your say, visit or ask for a printed copy of the survey at your local library.

The deadline for comments is 23 December 2016.
