Care to Know

A new campaign has been launched to give local people a greater understanding of the range of services available to improve independence, health and wellbeing provided by Liverpool City Council and NHS Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group (LCCG).

Care to Know has been developed to help raise the profile of Adult Social Care, Public Health and More Independent services, so citizens have a greater understanding of the range of services that can help them to improve their independence and wellbeing which are provided by both Liverpool City Council and Liverpool CCG.

Health and social care can also be seen as a maze, with patients and carers finding it difficult to find credible and reliable information and people reluctant to ask for help because they see social care as ‘the beginning of the end’.

Deputy Mayor and Cabinet member for adult social care and health, Councillor Roz Gladden, said: “We want to help people understand what services are available and how they can access them, particularly for people who have a lesser need.

“By raising awareness of what services are on offer for individuals with low and moderate needs that can to help people to keep their independence and self-manage their health now, will help to prevent people from needing more critical care in the future, which is really important due to the 58 percent cut in council funding from Central Government.”

The project includes a promotional campaign in the local media to highlight the different types of services on offer, which can be found here
