Residents, town and parish councils, businesses, care professionals and charitable organisations are invited to attend a special event about the vision and ambitions for the future of health, social care and wellbeing on the Island.
The event, taking place at the Riverside Centre on Wednesday 3rd June between 15:00 and 19:00, will be an opportunity to find out more about My Life a Full Life and about an exciting scheme the Island has been chosen to take part in.
The Island has been selected by the government’s New Care Models Team to be one of 29 Vanguard sites around the country. Each site will receive support to develop new ways of providing health and social care that meet the needs of individuals. The team visited the Isle of Wight last week to find out more about the Island’s plans.
Councillor Steve Stubbings, Executive member for adult social care and community wellbeing, said:
“There are exciting times ahead and we have an opportunity to radically reshape the way that we approach health and wellbeing on the Island so that it meets people’s individual needs and makes full use of the wealth of expertise, knowledge and sense of community the people of the Island have to offer.
“I would urge people to come along to the event – which is a drop in session between 3pm and 7pm – to find out about and contribute to this exciting journey we are on.”
