Press statement: Place To Be Strategy

Cllr Ally Simcock, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, Health Integration and Wellbeing said:

" Our priority is to invest in services to support vulnerable people and The Place To Be strategy outlines Stoke-on-Trent City Council's commitment to ensuring residents of the city are able to thrive and achieve their ambitions. We believe passionately in every individual’s right to pursue possibilities, dreams, and aspirations.

"It sets out how we will support vulnerable people in our communities and help them to live well whilst assisting businesses to thrive and make our city more prosperous. We will make sure we are accessible to people and that they know their rights and what help is available to them.

“As a city we are strong with our strength rooted in our communities, and this strategy reflects the assets in our local neighbourhoods, the strength of our voluntary, community, charity, social enterprise and faith groups that glue these communities together, and our commitment to working closely with health partners to improve people’s experiences of health and social care. We have already started on this journey through our Communities Together work, bringing a wide range of agencies together where people are, to resolve issues quickly and ensure people are linked into accessing the tools they need to fix problems quickly.

“We know we have a number of challenges as a city, with people living longer and people struggling with mental health and living a healthy long life. Therefore over the next three years the delivery of health and social care is delivered will change, with our vision having the community at its heart, whilst focusing on a partnership approach.”
