Response from OCC to Day time Support Consultation


As you are aware Oxfordshire County Council has carried out a review of daytime support for people aged over 18 in Oxfordshire. The review focused on understanding the needs of vulnerable people for daytime support, specifically support to meet eligible care needs and support that prevents care needs escalating. Its purpose was to help the council to develop future options for daytime support that meet people’s needs, and the council’s statutory responsibilities, within the current financial resources.

We carried out a public consultation in November and December 2016, looking at the proposals that came out of the review. More than 1000 people participated, with responses from a wide range of people including people who use services, carers, providers, staff and voluntary and community groups. We are grateful for your valuable contributions.

The Consultation Report, and our Response, will be available on the website today:

The views shared during the consultation helped to shape and inform the final recommendations, available in the Cabinet paper. Cabinet will consider these on 24th January. Full papers will be available today, here.

We will update you on the outcome and next steps, following the decision making process. This would include information on the transition process.

Thank you for your continued support.
