Do you sometimes find it difficult to access information about your adult social care and support?

Kirklees Council Adult Social Care would like to hear about your experiences and how things could be improved.

We are also interested to know if you would like to be able to access more of your information online and if so, how.

  • I have mental health and use services. I would like to speak with the independent investigators but have recently been told to go and see my MP or take legal advice. The last survey I saw wouldn’t have exposed most issues. Online Trust is a thing and a person wouldn’t know who or where the information they provide would go or potentially end up, or what it could be used for. From lived experience people have enough to deal with without getting into online debate and wrongly or rightly don’t believe they are always being ‘helped’ Findings get published and lessons are learned, but services seem to get less effective. Funding is always mentioned, despite people down London, including PM, saying they are putting money into mental health services it must fall down the Watford Gap on the way to Yorkshire. Services are in crisis and often hinder not help at a time when more and more people need help, often through no fault of their own. Trust and confidence in Kirklees council is at a new all time low generally. Their Surveys show residents are happy and satisfied but no one ever meets satisfied residents but that’s statistics and the way the questions are asked. There used to be health meetings with ‘people of lived experience’ chaired by Alex Feather which were very good and useful but funding was pulled and the meetings discontinued. Alex could probably be found through the mental health magazine or recovery college if that’s still a thing? Trying to stay positive.

  • I tried to complete this survey, I care for two adults and I am disabled. We have never received help and when I have contacted Kirklees have found them to be disinterested. When I answered that we have never received care the survey threw me out. A very effective way of precluding anyone who may need care but is unable to access any. We remain isolated apart from a private carer for two hours a week and, though I’ve no desire to cross Kirklees Council, in my opinion they are failing in their duty of care.. Apparently those who are reducing costs by caring for family members at home will continue to be ignored.
