Making it Real: Improving adult services in Hackney

Your views needed on local care and support services for adults in Hackney!

As part of Hackney’s Making it Real programme, Hackney Council are looking for people to work with them to improve adult services. There will be three working groups looking at:

  • Personal budgets, direct payments and self-funding: My Money
  • Flexible integrated care and support: My support, My Way
  • Information and Advice: Having the information I need when I need it

We are looking for people with experience of:

  • Using social care services, or
  • Caring for an adult who uses social care services

If you would like to be involved or would like more information on the working groups please email makingitreal@hackney.gov.uk or telephone Jo Blackwood on 0208 356 4959.
