County Council consultations on two Adult Social Care Prevention Services

Northamptonshire County Council are consulting on the following two Adult Social Care Prevention Services.
 
Decommissioning of Prevention Service for Adult Social Care Service
Hearing Impaired Services
Currently, DeafConnect has a contract with Northamptonshire County Council to provide a number of services to help deaf and hard of hearing adults to continue to live independently in their own home, with their family or carer(s).

DeafConnect offers an information, advice and support service to promote independence including access to specialist equipment and interpreting services. DeafConnect also provides opportunities for people to:

  • meet and socialise, taking part in a variety of activities
  • get access to health and care services
  • develop skills for independence, employment and hobbies

Due to Northamptonshire County Council’s poor financial situation however, we need to understand the impact of stopping this contract with DeafConnect or the services being provided in a different way. We would like to hear your views on this.

This consultation seeks to gather feedback and evidence about the impact of ending the Council’s current funding arrangements only for the adults support service (Children’s First will look separately at funding arrangements for children).

Have your say
You can give us your views in a number of ways. Please visit our web site for all of the different ways you can give your feedback, including our online questionnaire.

The deadline for this consultation is 5pm on 8th November 2018.

Decommissioning of Prevention Service for Adult Social Care Service
Visually Impaired Services

Currently, Northamptonshire County Council commissions (i.e. buys) a number of services through Northamptonshire Association for the Blind (NAB).

These services offer adults with sight loss advice, help and practical support to overcome the emotional and practical challenges of living with sight loss. This helps them to live as full, active and independent a life as possible in their own home and/or with their family or carer.

The services we buy from NAB helps those adults who require support due to their sight loss to:

  • Receive help to overcome the emotional trauma of sight loss, maintain a positive outlook on life and retain personal independence. This includes advice, guidance and support to:
    • cook safely when they have poor eyesight, and with food storage and preparation
    • get out and about i.e. doing the shopping
    • stay safe in and around the home
    • other daily living skills
    • get advice and guidance on the availability of health, social care, employment and other services, and benefits and entitlements that might help them overcome whatever challenges they might be struggling with as a result of their sight loss
  • Receive advice on the availability, suitability and use of specialist aids and equipment. These range from simple items such as bump-ons, talking watches, talking books and magazines, mobility aids, talking kitchen equipment plus task and other forms of lighting through to assistive technology such as magnifiers and telecare products.
  • Receive advice on the use of suitable ICT equipment such as smart phones, tablets, computers and voice activated devices.
  • Receive help on using the internet including online shopping and social media.
  • Support people to meet and socialise with other people who have similar, or different levels of sight loss at various locations within Northamptonshire.
  • Help people to learn new skills or to enjoy new hobbies, cultural activities, leisure pursuits and sporting activities.
  • Discover how to make use of existing skills or how to enjoy again many of the activities and interests they used to enjoy before their sight loss.

NAB can provide their advice, guidance and support to those that need it at either one of NAB’s sight centres or support within a person’s own home. However, due to its current poor financial situation the Council is now having to consider if the above services should be stopped or provided in a different way.

Have your say
You can give us your views in a number of ways. Please visit our web site for all of the different ways you can give your feedback, including our online questionnaire.

The deadline for this consultation is 5pm on 8th November 2018.

Survey regarding Proposed relocation of Daventry Library

​Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) wants to know your views about the proposed relocation from the current library building to the Abbey Advice and Resource Centre (The Abbey Centre).

Daventry Library currently occupies a former school building in the town centre which is owned by Daventry District Council (DDC).

The current site is in a poor condition and is no longer an ideal venue for Library Services. DDC would like to develop the site, which has led to the need for NCC to look for alternative premises for the library. DDC has offered NCC the use of most of the ground floor of the Abbey Centre, which is less than half a mile away from the current library building.

The Abbey Centre is a purpose built facility which is shared by voluntary sector partners who provide services that could be complimented by the services offered in the library.

Although the floor space at the Abbey Centre is slightly smaller than the current site the layout will be planned by a professional library designer to maximise usage of the space. We believe the relocation to the Abbey Centre will be beneficial and will be better than the current location. The public library area will be in one open, brighter space which will be more easily accessed.

DDC have offered to pay for the refit and refurbishment of the proposed new library space within the Abbey Centre. Moving to an alternative location would mean that NCC would have to fund any refit or refurbishment to make it fit for purpose to be used as a library.

Have your say
You can give us your views in a number of ways. Please visit our web site for all of the different ways you can give your feedback, including our online questionnaire.

This engagement closes at 5pm on 11 November 2018.

Details of the above and other past and present consultations are available on Northamptonshire County Council’s Consultation Register.
