What financially sustainable Adult Social Care means for each council is quite different. It involves combining the various demand and budget pressures including an increasingly mature understanding of demographic pressures, specific demand pressures such as DoLS and contributions to a council’s overall savings. Despite the softening effect of the precept in many councils this still all nets out to a need to deliver 15-25% savings.

The challenge for this interactive workshop: between us, can we design sustainable social care for Anywhere Council in 45 minutes? We will present the target demand model and then hold an interactive exercise where delegates will plot the future for a theoretical Anywhere Council, making decisions on the key variables.
