Southend Borough Council is working with residents to co-produce three 5 year Adult Social Care Strategies. There is a strategy for each of these groups:

1. All Age Carers - people who care for others in an unpaid role, often family members. We are also working with a group of young carers so their views are heard. You can download all the information about carers in Southend in the presentation here.

2. Working Age Adults - people who might have a disability, a learning disability or mental health needs. You can download all the information about working age adults in Southend in the presentation here.

3. Older Adults aged 65 years and over - people who might need help to live independently or be in supported housing. You can download all the information about older adults in Southend in the presentation here.

We'd love you to join the conversation with us. You can explore the different stories based on real experiences and share your thoughts in the 'Stories' tab below.

If you have your own ideas about how adult social care can support local people to live fulfilling lives, please share them with us on the 'Ideas' tab below.

We are also hoping to have ongoing conversations about social care in Southend-on-Sea. We will use the 'Forum' tab for this so drop by and join the conversation.

    We rely on the internet for so many things these days. During our conversations with residents, some people have told us that looking on the internet isn't the best place for them to find the information they need... 


    Where do you think is the most reliable source for finding information?

    • Word of mouth
    • Online
    • Email
    • Leaflets and posters in local spaces eg libraries

    Or can you suggest any other ideas?

    Unpaid carers make a huge contribution to life in Southend. How can we support them to continue caring for loved ones?
