An Overview

Work with us to shape the future of Social Care services in Cambridgeshire.

Cambridgeshire County Council (the Council) believes that everybody who lives in Cambridgeshire has the right to be involved in the Council decisions that affect their daily lives. As part of their commitment to support the voice of local people they commission us to organise and develop their four Adult Social Care* Partnership Boards.

We also hold Cross Partnership Board events and the Adult Social Care Forum

Each board’s role is to support and improve social care by including the people who use the services (service users) in their design, delivery and evaluation.

Each board is made up of:

• Service user representatives
• Voluntary sector service providers
• Statutory services such as health and social care

The Boards aspire to have 50% of members who are service users and for a service user representative to be the Chair person.

CAIL organises the Board meetings as well as providing support and training (as appropriate) to the service user representatives, to help them excel in their roles.
