Have your say on the future of adult social care services

New Search

Purpose Funding for local authority services such as those provided by Lancashire County Council has been reduced every year since 2009. From 2015 until 2018 government funding will decrease again, and we face the huge challenge of reducing our costs by a further 177m on top of the 134m of savings we've already made.

In this consultation we are asking you about a set of services which may significantly affect large numbers of people receiving services in their own homes, including:

- everyone receiving a county council funded social care service in their own home;
- carers; and
- people in receipt of Independent Living Fund (ILF).

The consultation will run for a 12 week period from 1 January to 31 March 2015.

Recognising that the timescales for consultation on these specific proposals relating to Adult Social Care and the overall budget package do not coincide, the Cabinet will be recommending to the County Council that a sum equivalent to the total 2015/16 effect of the proposals being consulted on is set aside from the Council's reserves in order to manage the risk of changes to the social care proposals following consultation. This means that when the Cabinet member(s) come to make the final decisions in relation to these issues they will be able to do so without undermining the integrity of the Council's budget.
