Better lives

In Barnsley, we should all have the best possible chance of enjoying life in good physical and mental health. Our adult social care services play such a vital role in ensuring local people experience high-quality care and support when they need it.

As we look forward, we want to bring together all the great work happening in adult social care in Barnsley. This is why we are developing our Better Lives programme, which will see our services working together to deliver excellence in adult social care for years to come.

Better Lives will focus on wellbeing, independence and community resilience, supporting people to live independently in their own home for as long as possible and ensuring those in need of our support have more say over the care they receive.

We’re excited about our Better Lives programme and believe it will positively impact local people’s lives by:

  • Promoting wellbeing and personal and community resilience.
  • Maximising recovery and promoting independence so people can live independently in their own communities for as long as possible.
  • Improving the quality of life for people with care and support needs.
  • Providing choice and control for people who have care and support needs.

Our Better Lives programme will also support our Healthy Barnsley ambitions. We’re excited to share what we’re doing to make sure you get the care and support you need – please check this page for regular updates from our services and providers.

We all want to live in a place we call home with the people and things that we love, in communities where we look out for one another, doing the things that matter to us – that’s the social care future we seek.
