Report by the Director of Adult Social Care and Health

3.2       The Lead Member RESOLVED to agree that the County Council consults for a 10 week period on:

            (1) a proposal to withdraw the subsidy from the meals in the community service, and

            (2) a proposed change in approach to supporting Working Age Adults.




3.3       The feedback received through the consultation process will be presented alongside an Equalities Impact Assessment, to inform Member decisions about the savings proposals.   The proposed consultation will focus on understanding the strategic challenges we face in addressing the comparatively high spend in this area, ensuring that if a decision is made to proceed with the savings this work is undertaken in an effective way.
