Adult Social Care delivery plan consultation

What we want to change

We have developed an adult social care strategy that details our vision for care and support in Medway, and sets out six priorities for the next four years.

  • Prevention: Making sure the Medway care and support system works to actively promote wellbeing and independence, and does not just wait to respond when people reach a crisis point.
  • Participation and Partnerships: Building strong partnerships to make sure that everything we do is with the participation of service users, carers and key organisations.
  • Personalisation: Maximising every person's independence, choice and control over their lives.
  • Integration: There is a clear requirement for care support to be well ‘joined up’ so that an individual has a clear plan supported by all the agencies working well together.
  • Innovation: Making the best of the opportunities that new technologies provide.
  • Safeguarding: Ensuring people are protected from abuse, neglect or exploitation, and that their views inform any action taken as much as possible.

We are keen to hear your experiences of Medway social care and support and would like your ideas about how we can best achieve our vision for Medway.
