Preventative commissioning

1. Overview

Stockport Council has introduced six new wellbeing and prevention services to improve health and social care services across the borough through the Stockport Together programme.

The new services are part of the Council's plan to make sure it meets the new duties introduced by the Care Act which came into force in April 2015.

Adults with autism who do not meet the eligibility criteria for adult social care may be able to use these services if they need support to live independently at home.

You can find more details about the services on the next few pages and in the looking after wellbeing info-graphic (PDF 13.Mb).
