Mental Health Service - Promoting Independence

 

Kent County Council is proposing to integrate two existing services into a single service when the existing contracts expire in October 2017.

 

The Housing Related Support and Supporting Independence Service both work to enable people with mental health issues to live independent lives in the community. The proposal is to join up these services to allow for more flexible support, a more person focused system which is easier to access and promotes independence.

 

Bringing these services together and working differently with our service providers, enabling them to meet people’s needs in a person centred and more responsive way will mean that people receive the support they need, when they need it and will enable us to deliver the efficiencies required. 

 

We would like to hear your views on how the new service should work to best meet the needs of the people of Kent. Please read through our consultation document which sets out the existing and proposed service, then use the online questionnaire to tell us what you think.

 

For alternative formats, please email alternativeformats@kent.gov.uk or telephone 03000 421553 (text relay 18001 03000 421553). This number goes to an answer machine which is monitored during office hours.
