The findings of a recent peer challenge on the use of resources and achieving value for money in Barnsley’s adult social care will be noted by Cabinet Members at their next meeting on Wednesday, 14 November.
The review was conducted by the Regional Association of Directors of Adult Social Services and took place over two days in September.
The overall conclusion of the peer reviewers was that adult social care in Barnsley is in a good place. The report presented to members highlights the numerous strengths and identifies some areas for consideration which will be progressed as part of the Adult Social Care and Health Business Unit’s service planning.
Cllr Margaret Bruff, Cabinet Spokesperson for People (Safeguarding) said: “The outcomes of the peer challenge provide assurance that all the key elements are in place to further build upon our many strengths. We will continue to use our available resources effectively and provide value for money in adult social care to make sure we continue to look after the people who need it most.”
