Current Consultations

There are various ways to get involved with having your say.

If you would like to get involved with consultative groups or becoming a carer rep please get in touch with Kim Terry at [email protected].

If, however you would like to have your say, share your views or give your opinion in a different way there are always consultations available online (or by post) and if you would like to get involved in this way we will list any that we feel are relevant below. If you would like more information please get in touch with us.

Your Life Your Choice  

Carers have been involved in providing feedback to Worcestershire County Council regarding the Your Life Your Choice Website and would value your comments.

Worcestershire County Council are pleased to inform you that the new and improved Your Life Your Choice website has now gone live. Colleagues across all directorates have been working together to improve the old site, previously just for adults, and add information for children, young people and families. The site aims to provide residents with information, advice and guidance on a range of topics and help residents to help themselves to prevent their problems from getting worse. There is also an e-marketplace of support services and products that can help and events, activities and support groups within each local area.

We hope this will be a site that all Worcestershire residents find useful to enable them to find the information and support that they need. If you have any feedback about the site or think there is anything missing, please provide your feedback using the app in the footer of the website.

The site is available at www.worcestershire.gov.uk/ylyc

Your chance to feedback: If you or the person you care for has a direct payment please can you help us in finding out how direct payments and the support received to use them are working for adults and families in Worcestershire.

We would like to know the positives of this, any difficulties this may have caused and any ideas to improve the support available to you to do this.
