Kirklees Council wanted to ensure that respite provision within Kirklees met the needs of service users and carers.
The current model of respite provision relies heavily on a buildings-based, bed-based model and ideas for change include remodelling the current provision to offer an increase in the choice of community-based options.
This engagement focuses on pre-bookable respite provision for older people and people with mental ill health who access respite breaks in Kirklees. Kirklees Council has already undertaken similar engagement with individuals with learning and physical disabilities and their carers.
