STOCKTON Council is urging residents who wish to give a view on the future of adult care services in the Borough to get in touch before consultation closes later this month.
Possible changes relate to eligibility for adult care services and what additional community-based services could replace them for some users.
The Council's Health Select Committee is carrying out the consultation to hear the views of as many people as possible. It will then make recommendations on which Cabinet will makes its decision in the autumn.
Councillor Ann Cains, Chair of Stockton Council's Health Select Committee, said: "We would like to hear what sort of community-based services people would most like to see if the changes go ahead.
"Over the past three months, the Council has contacted around 6,500 users of its adult social care service with information and organised more than 30 consultation events and meetings for local people to hear about the proposals and give their views.
"More than 1,100 people have responded to a survey questionnaire and all these responses will help us shape the way we provide services with the funds we have."
The Fair Access to Care consultation runs until 27 August. More information is available at www.stockton.gov.uk/fairaccesstocare or by email to [email protected] or by calling 01642 524700.
