Adult Social Care

Adult Social Care in B&NES focuses on commissioning high quality services to meet the needs of the residents with care and support needs. Our commissioning arrangements are integrated with BSW CCG and we focus on commissioning integrated services. Our prime provider is Virgin Health Care who provide all our community health and social care services. Our mental health social work service is integrated with AWP. Integration has always been at the heart of Adult Social Care in B&NES and we are working closely with our partners to develop the Integrated Care System.

Adult Social Care is embarking on a major transformation programme, with our partners, focusing on improving outcomes and reducing spend. We believe that it is a life not a service. Our priorities are:

  • A focus on prevention
  • Supporting people at home
  • Maximising independence
  • Improving outcomes
  • Quality Service provision
  • Reducing spend
