Adult social care strategies

We develop long-term plans (strategies) to work from so that we can deliver the best possible adult social care services for Leicester residents.

Further information

We have developed a range of documents that explain our plans for the future. These documents set out what we are doing to make sure that our adult social care services meet people’s needs for care and support. We also produce a document called the ‘local account’ each year that shows how we have performed for the previous year. The documents are listed below, along with a brief a description of what they are about.
