Our adult social care vision and strategy

Our vision for Adult Social Care is that ‘everyone in Sheffield lives in a place they can call home, in communities that care, doing things that matter to them, celebrated for who they are - and when they need it, they receive care and 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', it’s about how we work together to help the people of Sheffield to 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, and communities, and people who work in adult health and social care. We’ve listened to what people have said and this 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 you to refresh the delivery plan each year.

  • an easy-read version of the strategy (25 pages)
  • our high-level plan (1 page)
  • our delivery plan (9 pages)
  • an easy-read version of the delivery plan (14 pages)

We have also included audio versions of the strategy and the delivery plan through SoundCloud links.

The strategy also includes appendices that provide additional information about the strategy, its development, and our plans for delivery. We’ll update some of this information regularly.
