Local Account of Adult Social Services

Local Account 2015/16

The 2015/16 Local Account of Adult Social Services in Blackburn with Darwen is our opportunity to share with you an overview of the range of social care services we offered to local adults during 2014/15, as well as our plans for the year 2015/16 and beyond.

The first section of this Local Account, 'At a glance', shows how much we spent last year and what we spent it on.  National budget cuts are having an impact on the money we have to spend; however, we have done our best to identify savings which will have the least impact on the people that most need our help and support. 

By making better uses of new technology, working differently and working more closely with our partner organisations to share resources, we hope to continue to provide a wide range of support, despite having to meet budget savings expected by the Government in 2015/2016.

We welcome your comments about our services, about our priorities and about this Local Account. You can let us know your views by writing to Customer Care, Adult Social Services, PO Box 478, Blackburn, BB2 9BR.  You can also email or call us on (01254) 585755.

During 2015/16 and beyond we will continue to seek the views of a wide range of people who use our services, including those from representative groups.  Healthwatch Blackburn with Darwen is an independent organisation which ensures your views on local health and social care services are heard. To contact them you can call them on (01254) 504985, email or visit their website:
