Working with Carers on our Adult Social Care Mental Health Plan

We would like to invite you to a coffee morning in order to discuss the development of an Adult Social Care Mental Health Commissioning and Delivery Plan.

The plan looks at how we intend to take forward our vision to support all adults in Bridgend who require Adult Social Care mental health services and their carers

We would like to hear your views as a carer working within Bridgend County Borough on how we should develop the plan.

The event is an opportunity for us to talk to you about:

  • Our vision for meeting the needs of adults requiring mental health services and those that care for them;
  • How services for adults with mental health care needs are developing in Bridgend County Borough and how we can support people with mental ill health;
  • What we feel are priorities for change.

dditionally, it will offer anyone who would like to share their views an opportunity to provide us with their opinions on:

  • Adult Social Care services and support that is currently available to you;
  • What you would like to see change;
  • What you think works well;
  • Issues you have faced;
  • Our priorities for change.

Review of weekly maximum charge, for social care by the Welsh Assembly

Review of weekly maximum charge proposed by the Welsh Assembly

We are seeking your views and comments on proposals to revise the weekly maximum charge.
Start of consultation: 07/02/2014
End of consultation: 07/03/2014

This is in respect of people who are required to pay for the non-residential social services they receive.

We ask you to consider:

  • a proposal to increase  the weekly maximum charge from £50 to £55 per week from April 2014; and
  • a proposal to increase the weekly maximum charge from £55 to £60 per week from April 2015.

The weekly maximum charge was introduced by the Welsh Government as part of the First Steps Improvement Package in April 2011.

This introduced more consistency in the charges local authorities make for the non-residential social services they provide.

How to respond

Please submit your comments by 07 March 2014, in any of the following ways:
