Wirral Plan: A 2020 Vision - Underpinning Strategies: All Age Disability Strategy
“Our ambition is to empower and enable our residents so that they can live healthy, independent lives in strong and vibrant communities where they feel safe and are safe. We want this for all of our disabled residents regardless of where they live in Wirral, and we want to recognise the contribution that they make to our local communities.
In the Wirral Plan we set out the following pledge: It is our aim to support more people with disabilities to increase their independence and access to work, education and volunteering”
Councillor Chris Jones
Reason for Decision:
The All Age Disability Strategy had been developed to deliver the Wirral Plan pledge for ‘People with disabilities live independently’.
The Strategy had been developed with people with disabilities and their Carers, partners and stakeholders to ensure that there had been extensive engagement in the development of the Strategy and its priority areas.
The Strategy had also been shared with the All Age Disability Partnership Board - responsible for monitoring the implementation of the Strategy.
That the All Age Disability Strategy be approved.
Councillor Chris Jones introduced a report which provided Cabinet with the All Age Disability Strategy; a key strategic document which described ambitions related to the Wirral Plan People Priority:
“Wirral is a place where the vulnerable are safe and protected, every child gets a good start in life and older residents are respected and valued”.
The Wirral Plan: A 2020 Vision sets out a shared vision to improve outcomes for Wirral residents. Delivery of the priorities and outcomes described in the Plan were underpinned through the development and implementation of a set of key strategies.
