Independent Futures has brought together children’s and adults’ disability services into one dedicated, seamless service.
Our approach is to ensure disabled children, young people and adults of any age and with the most complex needs can live healthy and fulfilling lives, and have increasing control over what they want to do and how they wish to be supported.
Our vision is:
To create a robust key worker model that enables people with disabilities and their families to live their life their way.
The key worker model means there will be one constant professional throughout the individual’s life journey to act as a single point of contact and help ensure the individual and their families get specialist support as and when needed (e.g. the Independent Futures Social Worker or Occupational Therapist or professionals from other services such as health, housing and education).
Work towards this is ongoing and as it continues, frontline staff and key stakeholders, customers and interested parties will all be involved in helping to shape this into a modern forward thinking and responsive service for the citizens and the workforce of Staffordshire.
