What is Community Life Choices?

Community Life Choices is the new name for Day Services.  The new name reflects the changes in the way social care services are provided, giving people a personal budget so that they have choice and control over the services they receive.

A number of traditional building based 'day centres' still operate throughout the County either run by the County Council or Independent and Voluntary Sector organisations. These provide a safe and supportive place for people with high support needs to spend time during the day.

Community based services offer people more choice, flexibility and opportunities to do things in their local community. E.g.

·    Learn new skills and hobbies

·    Meet new friends

·    Enjoy trips out

·    Share meal times with other people
