Adult social care - Your Life Your Choice

Welcome to the Your Life Your Choice adult social care webpages.

We put you at the heart of our approach to adult social care so that you are able to live the sort of life you want.

The national Personalisation Programme transformed adult social care to improve the quality of life for people in Derby. Personalisation gives you greater choice and control over your care so that you can live a more independent life.

Read more in the 'Your Life Your Choice - Building the care and support we need in Derby 2016 strategy', which outlines our plans for adult social care in the city.

Face-to-face chat with social care

If you would like information and advice on a variety of local support solutions without having to go through a full assessment of your social care needs, you can arrange to see a social care worker for an informal face-to-face chat. We have appointments and drop in sessions available in a number of community venues throughout the week. For more information please visit our Talking Points page.
