Community Life Choices - have your say!

Date: Sunday, August 21st 2016
Categories: All Leicestershire Activities & Events Groups & Forums

Leicestershire County Council has said it's facing its biggest ever financial challenge with the authority having to consider savings in all areas. Have your say on proposed changes to Community Life Choices.

The Council has launched a consultation to seek feedback on proposed changes to Community Life Choices.

The consultation will run until midnight on 4th September 2016.

Community Life Choices are better known as day services, and provide a safe and supported place for people in Leicestershire with health needs such as learning difficulties, physical disabilities and mental illness.

The Council currently spends £7.7 million on Community Life Choices and are proposing to make reductions of £500,000 in 2017/18, rising to £750,000 in 2018/19, a saving of 9%.

In order to respond to this the Council needs to explore how they can provide a more efficient service, while minimising the impact on service users and their families.

The consultation will run until midnight on 4th September 2016, with the findings reported back to the Council’s ruling cabinet in Autumn 2016.

To submit your views, please read the summary document provided, then continue to the online questionnaire to provide your feedback. 

Paper copies of the survey are available on request by calling 0116 305 0232 or if you currently receive Community Life Choices your service provider will be able to give you a copy.

If you need help to complete the questionnaire or have any questions about the consultation, please call 0116 305 0232 or email [email protected]
