The Director of Adult Social Services presented a report which set out a new strategy for Learning Disability Services in Wirral. The Strategy was built on “Valuing People Now” and involved all key stakeholders in a new approach.
The delivery plans outlined in the Strategy were anticipated to deliver 10% in financial efficiency savings over 2010-13 across the Health and Social Care economy. However, demands on the budget were set to increase as the numbers of people with learning disability were expected to rise over the next 15 years, from 5,693 in 2010, to 5,719 in 2025. In the same time period, the numbers of people aged 65+ with a Learning Disability were expected to increase from 1,202 in 2010, to 1,579 in 2025, meaning an increase in the numbers with the highest levels of dependency on the Health and Social Care economy from within a group who already required statutory support.
The Cabinet Member for Social Care and Inclusion commented that this was a major step forward for this service.
Resolved - That the Three Year Strategic Commissioning Framework for People with Learning Disabilities in Wirral be implemented.
