Adult Social Care

What does it do?

Derby City Council is changing the way it works with people. It will be putting you at the heart of its social care approach, to give you more choice and control. We call this ‘Self Directed Support’. We will work with you to help find the right support for your needs, providing a much more personal approach to care. The need for this change has been identified in new national policy based on what people have been saying they want. This is called Personalisation.
