The performance updates and focused delivery plan gives a structured approach to the promotion of independent living as well as how the service is addressing waiting lists and impact of the pandemic. It will also provide greater accountability and transparency of how we will do this.

 

Asking for regular updates and refreshes of the plan will keep the Committee, wider stakeholders, and the public the ability to hold the Council to account for progress and provide an additional mechanism to input to future development.

 

Alternatives Considered and Rejected

 

The alternative options considered were: Don’t complete a delivery plan for equipment and adaptations performance and financial recovery. This would not provide the assurances required to ensure that we are striving towards a high performing and financially sustainable service.

 

CARERS STRATEGY ANNUAL REPORT

 

The Committee considered a report of the Strategic Director for Adult Care and Wellbeing which provided an update to the Adult Health and Social Care Committee on progress of our multi-agency Carers Delivery Plan (2022-2025).

 

RESOLVED UNANIMOUSLY: That the Adult Health and Social Care Policy Committee:

 

1. Recognise the positive progress made on delivery of the Carers Delivery Plan (2022-2025).

2. Reaffirm our commitment to people who are unpaid carers across the city, so they feel recognised, valued, and supported and request that the Strategic Director brings a report to Committee setting out how we will become a Carer Friendly City. 3. Acknowledge the future actions the Delivery Plan aim to deliver.

4. Request that the Strategic Director Adult Care and Wellbeing brings back updates every 6 months as an assurance on delivery of the plan.

 

Reasons for Decision

 

We want to be bold and ambitious and make Sheffield a carer friendly city. We recognise, value and support our carers and the vital role they have in our communities. We know from the first 12 months that the Carers Delivery Plan has positively impacted the lives of carers but there is still much more to do.

 

Carers are vital to our health and social care systems. They provide care to some of the most vulnerable in our communities and in doing so save the economy billions of pounds per year, however being a carer can lead to social, educational and health inequalities. It is therefore essential that we recognise, value and support those in a caring role and prevent inappropriate caring, especially with young carers; our Carers Delivery Plan empowers us do this.

 

Alternatives Considered and Rejected

 

Option – Not to update to the Delivery Plan – Rejected.

 

Now is the right time to reaffirm our commitment to carers. The Council and its partners want to continue to make Sheffield a carer friendly city.

 

ADULT CARE STRATEGY DELIVERY AND SERVICE PERFORMANCE UPDATE

 

The Committee considered a report of the Strategic Director for Adult Care and Wellbeing which sought to:

 

• Provide a further scheduled update to Sheffield’s Adult Health and Social Care Strategy, aligned to the cycle of assurance, setting out the delivery progress and what’s been achieved.

• Provide an overview of the draft CQC self-assessment for Adult Care, including the full assessment document as an appendix, and horizon scan.

• Demonstrate how impact is being measured so that progress could be demonstrated in enabling citizens of Sheffield to live the life they want to live.

 

RESOLVED UNANIMOUSLY: That the Adult Health and Social Care Policy Committee:

 

1.    Notes progress in delivering upon the Adult Care Strategy Living the Life You Want to Live.

2.    Notes Adult Care and Wellbeing performance at February 2024 in relation to each of the Adult Care and Wellbeing priorities and our actions in response.

3.    Notes the planned consultation and engagement on the CQC selfassessment and our preparations.
