Adult social care strategies
We have the following strategies and policies relating to adult social care.
Ageing better plan
The 65 and older age group is predicted to grow and will make the largest proportional population increases.
Our Ageing Better Plan 2019 to 2023 sets out the guiding principles that all organisations working with older people in South Gloucestershire commit to.
All age learning disability
The All Age Learning Disability Strategy sets out our vision and priorities for people of any age with a learning disability in South Gloucestershire from April 2022 to March 2027.
The strategy been developed with the Learning Difficulties Partnership Board. It includes input from parents and carers, providers, practitioners, commissioners, schools, and adults and young people with learning disabilities.
You can get involved in the work we are doing by getting involved with the Learning Difficulties Partnership Board.
The Carers Strategy 2022 to 2027 sets out our focus and priorities for all carers in South Gloucestershire.
Caring can look different for each person and can include:
- children and young people supporting parents and siblings
- adults supporting spouses, and family members with long term conditions
- parents supporting children with a disability
We have worked with a range of partners, providers, schools and community groups supporting carers, including young carers, young adult carers and parent carers.

About the carers strategy
We want carers of all ages to be able to say that they:
- are recognised, listened to and respected as an expert partner in care by professionals, schools, employers and my community
- know where to access good quality information on what support is available, at a time that suits them, so that they can achieve their goals and live their life the way they choose
- are able to take a break away from their caring role to support their mental and physical health and achieve their own goals
- receive the support they need, when they need it, and that suits them
Health and wellbeing
The Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy is a plan that aims to improve the health and wellbeing of people in South Gloucestershire.
It focuses on local health and wellbeing priorities. This includes measurement of how we are doing in improving these priorities and advice to local organisations and communities about what they can do to improve health and wellbeing.
Our local account sets out how well we are doing in meeting the needs of our residents who require care and support.
Local accounts are annual reports designed to give residents a clear picture of:
- the achievements made in adult social care and how well we are performing
- the changes and challenges we are facing
- our plans for future improvements
