Our vision and strategic objectives

Our vision and strategic objectives

1. In adult social care, we support the Council’s vision of being an ambitious, innovative and sustainable county, where everyone has the opportunity to prosper, be healthy and happy – including people with adult social care needs. We support the Council’s priority outcome that everyone in Staffordshire will be healthier and independent for longer, with a priority to encourage good health and wellbeing, resilience and independence. These outcomes and priorities increasingly shape our approach to strength-based working, integration, prevention and community services. Our ambition is for people to live independently for as long as possible.

2. Our strategic objectives for Health and Care are to: 

  • Promote good health and independence, and encourage and enable people to take personal responsibility for maintaining their well-being 

  • Ensure effective and efficient assessment of needs that offers fair access to services 

  • Maintain a market for care and support that offers services at an affordable price 

  • Ensure best use of resources, people, data and technology 


3. Specifically for Disability Services, our strategic objectives are: 

  • Improve the quality of care in Staffordshire, primarily measured by the proportion of registered services we commission rated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) as ‘outstanding’ or ‘good’, and through monitoring how people achieve their individual outcomes and through contract monitoring processes for non-registered services 

  • Ensure timely access to care when required, through improving the process / pathway for assessment through to placement/package of support

  • Ensure affordability of care, with the Council aiming to pay a fair price, achieving value for money for the Council taxpayers, and remaining within budget

  • Develop and facilitate access to community capacity to help individuals with disabilities remain healthy and independent by encouraging care providers to make the most of people’s strengths and the assets available in local communities including informal support networks, to take positive risks and to avoid restrictive practices.
