Who Cares? What social care is all about
Welcome to adult's social care in Walsall! We want to highlight all the positive work we do and give people an insight into what social care is all about.
Who Cares? blog
To help people get a first hand look at the world of social care from a professional's eyes, we've started a blog. Different social care staff will contribute to the blog at different times. We're grateful for your thoughts and feedback on this unique look at social care in Walsall.
Who Cares? 2 July - 6 July 2012
The focus for this Who Cares? Week will be all about independence. Who Cares? is a Walsall Council initiative to give people an insight into the diverse role of social care throughout Walsall. We will be showcasing some of the many ways that people can live life to the full, including employment, telecare, housing, equipment and much more! Stories of local people who've been helped to get back on their feet will be shared, we'll be tweeting live from some of the borough's activities and our Independence Day event will take place at the Independent Living Centre on Wednesday 4 July 2012. Our blog will give people an inisight into how our community social work team has helped people who were at or near rock bottom to get back on their feet. It promises to be an inspiring week!
Who Cares? 21 May - 25 May 2012
Carers, dementia awareness and the support being given to people with learning and physical disabilities to come back to Walsall to live are all topics that will take centre stage next week in the second Who Cares? focus.
Who Cares? was launched last year and is a Walsall Council initiative to give people an insight into the role of social care in the borough.
Running throughout next week (21 May - 25 May), the multi-media event will feature the daily demands and challenges that are faced by thousands of carers, day in day out, and the partnership work between the council, Age UK Walsall and Accord Group in developing specialised dementia support and advice.
There will be live Tweets from a carers' consultation event in Bentley, as people share their experiences and expertise.
And Twitter will also be used to give people a taste of a typical day at Walsall's new Independent Living Centre - the £300,000 joint social care and health investment which showcases the latest technology, state-of-the-art equipment and support available for disabled people of all ages.
The help that is available for Walsall residents across the borough's communities will also be highlighted.
