Barnsley Council publish films encouraging independent living

Barnsley Council has made a series of films they developed available on their YouTube channel for anyone looking for support to live independently.

This series of short films about adult social care services and personal budgets, explain what is available for people who need support to live independently because they are older, have a disability, a health condition or are otherwise vulnerable.

They take the viewer through all the steps and processes involved - from having an assessment to completing a support plan, to getting a direct payment to different ways to manage care.

There are also case studies from people who currently use services, their carers and personal assistants telling their real-life stories about how direct payments have helped them to lead the life they want to lead, in a way that works for them.

To watch the films, visit their YouTube channel or Barnsley's adult social care, health and wellbeing website.

    Could you please send a copy to Lancashire Social Services to help drag them into the 21st century.
    Addressed to the commissioner of services would be nice.
