Despite the harsh economic climate, East Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership continues to deliver social work and social care services which are making real, positive changes to the lives of local people.
Chief Social Work Officer, Marion MacAulay, presented the 2018/19 annual report on the delivery of social work services at a full Council meeting last week.
The report highlights many real achievements across children’s services, social work justice, adult and community care and social work out of hours services as part of Ayrshire Urgent Care Services.
The full report was warmly welcomed and approved at the East Ayrshire Council meeting on 31 October.
Councillor Iain Linton, cabinet member with responsibility for wellbeing, said: “These far-thinking initiatives are bringing real benefits to our communities and the young people themselves.
“Improving the health and wellbeing of our community is central to the Partnership’s approach and initiatives such Front Door Services and Care at Home are making a big difference in the lives of our older and less able residents.”
“As expected, challenges remain but the Partnership continues to learn, develop and look for better and more supportive ways of working together for the benefit of the people who use the services, communities, and staff, in order to deliver the best health and social care outcomes for East Ayrshire.”
The full annual report is available here.
