One month left to have your say on what makes a good day in Dorset

Dorset Council News Feed - Fri, 02/26/2021 - 13:15

The views of anyone who accesses or works in day centres across the Dorset Council area, have one month left to submit their questionnaires about What makes a good day? – in a first-of-its-kind survey for day services.


The consultation, due to close on 26 March 2021, is from the council’s A Better Day programme, which aims to find out how day centres and services are used and what contributes to people having ‘a good day’.

The short survey, titled ‘What makes a good day?’ has been sent to 2000 carers and 1600 adults who receive social care, but Dorset Council is also keen to hear from friends and family of people who spend their time at a day centre, so services can be improved to cater for individuals’ needs and interests. Feedback from the questionnaire will help shape which activities and services will be on offer to the community in the coming years.

The council is reviewing how day centres are utilised, with the aim of creating bespoke care packages for people and supporting them to live fulfilling and happy lives.

Day opportunities and support are available in many forms – through networks of family and friends, organisations, communities and through the council. People have the option to attend community-based centres, access voluntary groups and receive support from personal assistants, family members or friends.

Activities within a day centre may include arts and crafts, open conversations, music and games. A day opportunity could also involve educational or seasonal activities, life skills training and helping people to prepare for living independently.

Cllr Laura Miller, Portfolio Holder for adult social care and health and Cllr Simon Gibson, lead member for care are leading this work and have the following message for residents:

“We want to make sure we spend the money supporting people in the right way. We believe in giving people the choice of deciding what they do, rather than map it out for them.

“We would like to work with the people we support, their families, carers, providers and colleagues – to create community-based, local day opportunities and support in the right places, at the right times.”

Residents and carers can complete the survey online or return a paper copy free of charge. The team also welcome feedback by email, telephone and in group telephone chat sessions (see website for details).

The questionnaire is available for anyone who is supported or who provides care in the Dorset Council area. A paper copy can be requested by calling 01305 228554 (during opening hours).

The consultation closes on 26 March 2021.

Results of the survey will be published in late Spring.
