Adult Social Care Market Position Statement

Vision and strategic priorities

Adult Social Care works in an environment that requires it to set local plans and ambitions by working in partnership with local stakeholders and delivering on national obligations. The Adult Social Care Strategy 2021-25 sets out the collective vision to ensure that people can get the right level and type of support at the right time to help, prevent, reduce or delay the need for ongoing support and maximise their independence.

This vision is underpinned by 4 strategic priorities:

  • to provide support to people to prevent, reduce or delay the need for ongoing support and maximise their independence
  • to ensure people can get the right level and type of support at the right time
  • to develop and support our staff and to support providers of social care services to develop and support their staff
  • to work with, and within, communities

The Adult Social Care Strategy is a vital part of the plan for the Borough as we are setting out our vision and plans to provide support and care for the people who need it. Collaborative working across Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council (the Council) and with partner organisations is key; we will be working with others to drive forward the plans identified in these strategies to make sure that together they deliver the greatest possible benefit to the people of the Borough. We want the people in our Borough to feel connected to their communities, for people to feel safe and for people to live the most fulfilled and happy life they can.
