The way we deliver services has change considerably over the years. In the 1940s and 50s, it was the norm for people to turn to their families, friends and communities when they needed support. Over the years, things gradually changed and today people now see the council as the first port of call and we have more customers than ever.
What we’re looking at is a fundamental change in our approach to supporting people. We need to go back to the days where communities were stronger and people looked out for each other in their own neighbourhoods so we can protect the most vulnerable.
