Is subject to call in?: No
The Board considered a report of the Strategic Director – People, requesting agreement of the Adult Social Care Annual Report (Local Account) for 2020-21, which was appended to the report.
The Adult Social Care Annual Report was now an embedded part of the reporting cycle for Halton Borough Council and whilst not a mandatory requirement, it remained supported as good practice by the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS).
The Board was advised that the format of the report for Halton was refreshed a couple of years ago in both its look and focus, making it more straightforward and therefore more accessible. The report included information on the successes and achievements across Adult Social Care, details of progress against performance metrics, some of the challenges faced, how we responded to community needs and details of future activities to be further developed.
It was also noted that the Annual Report, also known as the ‘Local Account’, served as a review mechanism for Adult Social Care to consider as part of ongoing continuous service improvement measures.
RESOLVED: That Executive Board
1) agree for the Adult Social Care Annual Report 2020-21 to be published and shared with partners and stakeholder organisations; and
2) acknowledges the achievements across Adult Social Care during the height of the pandemic.
