Page 1 of 8

Closes 13 Sep 2019

Overview

Introduction

This consultation is an opportunity for you to give your opinion about the proposals the Council is putting forward for older adults day services and to tell us about any alternatives that you may wish the Council to consider, recognising the constraints the council is working within.

It is very important that we hear from you and we welcome any comments you would like to make on this subject. We have written to all service users who may be affected by these changes inviting them to complete this questionnaire.

We are inviting other local organisations, including voluntary and advocacy groups in Lewisham, to comment on these proposals.

Please note that this survey is anonymous so we will not be able to identify you by your response.

When does the consultation end?

The consultation ends on 13 September 2019.

What happens after the consultation?

Once the consultation closes we will consider the responses received and a summary of the responses will be included in a report to the Mayor and Cabinet meeting in October 2019. That report may also recommend changes to the original proposals based on the findings of this consultation.

The report will ask for approval for the proposed changes to day services. People who are affected by the proposals will be supported with any changes to their service.  We expect to have made any changes agreed by Mayor and Cabinet by June 2020.
