national changes send reforms
National changes – SEND reforms

From Children and Families’ Bill – Special Educational Needs and Disability. About providing greater choice, control and independence for children and young people with disabilities (0-25).

This includes offering young people a personal budget and creating a clear and transparent local offer of what is available. Also developing a more streamlined and co-ordinated assessment process across education, health and care.

Market development to support all this also a major strand of work.

In Southwark, will also include development of a health and social care strategy specifically for adults with autism, and outlining a pathway for young people (under 25) with autism spectrum disorders.

national changes care bill
National changes – Care Bill

Reforming the law on care and support, making it a single statute built around people’s needs and what they want to achieve in life. Currently going through Parliament – if it becomes law, implementation will be from 2015.

Part of the Bill about confirming things we already do. However, are number of new developments. These include:

care and support funding reform, including a cap on care costs and creation of care accounts

treating carers as equal to the person they care for and putting them on the same legal footing

national eligibility criteria for care and support

guarantees and reassurances for people needing care and support if they move between areas in England

promoting integration with other local services, particularly health, so people can achieve better outcomes.

partnership working integration
Partnership working – integration

Integration in Southwark

Developing a vision for integrated working with health partners.

Supporting the goal of people in Southwark feeling in control of their lives and care, and for services to be co-ordinated and planned with them as individuals.

In future, will be specific funding identified to support joint working and outcomes through national Better Care Fund.

SLIC programme

Partnership across Southwark & Lambeth involving GPs, hospitals, adult social care and NHS clinical commissioning groups, with local people.

Independently funded. Focus to date has been on integrated care to support older people and moving into long-term conditions more broadly.

Has set up multi-disciplinary teams to support people more holistically and starting to develop wider range of work.

Number of workstreams that look at areas including hospital discharge, falls, nutrition, as well as wider issues such as IT.

  • Now and through February. Initial findings to Board 24 March.

Please get involved! Can we work with your group to have your stories



role of the vcs
Role of the VCS

Key stakeholder for many of the areas of work described - number of the projects highlighted have specific VCS partner engagement already.

Conduit to a wide range of views from people who actually access services and are vital to shaping what they should be like in the future.

Number of the reforms are likely to also have a challenge for the VCS in terms of thinking about how they support people locally and how they might need to think about themselves and what they do differently in a changing system.
