Have your say on the development of our equality objectives
We are inviting residents, service users and other stakeholders to have their say on the development of our Equality objectives.

The consultation will run until 22 February 2012. Find out more and have your say on the equality objectives page.
Local account: how well we deliver adult social care services
The government has ended Care Quality Commission annual assessments of council adult social care services. In their place we are required to publish a local account to enable residents to judge how well we are performing against our priorities for adult social care.
We are inviting feedback from residents and other stakeholders on the content and format of this our first local account. The consultation runs from 20 December 2011 until 13 March 2012.
