The Local Account is a yearly report which brings together information about how the Council supports adults with social care needs in Calderdale.
It describes the types of services that are available to help people to be as safe and independent as possible. It also gives us the opportunity to provide an update on the progress we are making on implementing the Directorate Vision:
The Local Account reviews what we achieved in the past year and it looks forward to our new priorities and what we are planning to do in the future.
In Calderdale our Local Account is called Your Life Your Support and follows the social care journey: starting with what happens when someone first contacts us; it explains what social care is and gives advice so that people can do things for themselves if they want to. In addition to the Local Account, we also provide a summary which gives an oversight of the main document, as well as an easy read version.
