Leeds adult care 

Location: UK » North East » LS

In 2011/12 Leeds City Council is likely to close four residential homes, rising to 13 by 2014/15.

Eight day centre closures are anticipated in 2011/12 - four for older people, three for people with learning disabilities and one for people with mental health problems. By 2014/15 it is expected that 16 centres will have closed; 10 for older people, four for people with learning disabilities and two for people with mental health needs.

The reduction in day centre provision will have some impact on the level of transport provided and it may be appropriate to review the policy for customer transport to ensure that those people who are able to access services independently do so.

The directly-provided home care service is expected to reduce by around 150 full-time equivalent staff by early 2011/12 and work is ongoing to develop future options for the service. There will be reduced staffing levels associated with these service changes as well as some savings in running expenses.

Major consultation on these changes started in January 2011.
