Our adult social care vision and strategy

Sheffield Adult Social Care envisions a Sheffield that everyone can call home within communities that care.

We want people to be celebrated for who they are and for them to be able to do things that matter to them. When they are in need of care, we want them to receive the kind of support that prioritises independence, choice and recovery.

Adult Health and Social Care strategy

We have developed a new Adult Health and Social Care strategy to set out our vision for 2022 to 2030 called Living the Life you want to Live.

Living the Life you want to Live is about how we work together to help the people of Sheffield live long, healthy and fulfilled lives.

We are pleased to share the strategy and the high-level plan, which describes some of the actions we intend to take to meet the strategy.

We have developed these from discussions with a wide range of individuals and groups between late 2020 and early 2022. This includes people who receive care and support, their carers, communities and people who work in adult health and social care.

We’ve listened to what people have said, and their feedback has been used to develop the strategy and the high-level plan.

The strategy and high-level plan were formally agreed at our Co-operative Executive meeting on 16 March 2022.

The strategy delivery plan for 2022 to 2030 was formally agreed at the Adult Health and Social Care Policy Committee on 15 June 2022. We will work with communities to refresh this plan each year.
