Kirklees Council wants people's views on the future of its children's services

Kirklees Council is asking for people’s views on the future of its children, young people and family support services.
Over the last 18 months, the council has been considering ways to improve the support it offers to local people while also managing a growing demand for these services.
Now it is keen to hear what people think about how Kirklees supports people with health and social care needs, ensuring they stay well and get the right help when they need it most.
By doing this the hope is it will delay or prevent the need for more costly services in the future.
Clr Erin Hill, Cabinet Member for Family Support and Child Protection, said: “Support for children, young people and families is a council priority and we are totally committed to making sure all of our services remain available to those who need them the most, no matter what age. However, in the future this will have to be done differently and there will be a change to what is delivered in our communities.
“Helping people earlier rather than later is better for everyone. It isn’t just about financial savings, it’s about improving the way we work, supporting local people and the positive difference that can be made when we all work together. It’s very important to note that we will always help children and families who need extra support, for example where there are child protection concerns – this is top of our priority list.”
“Like all councils, we have to make choices about the most effective way to spend our limited resources.
“All council services are being challenged to do things differently and we have already saved large amounts of money while making improvements wherever possible. The proposals for children, young people and family support services reflect this and are just one part of the overall change programme”.
Early help will see the council work more closely with local organisations, including the police, health, schools and community groups, to prevent duplication of work and to better co-ordinate services for families.
People can get involved in the discussion until August 7 by picking up a booklet from council offices and filling in the questionnaire at the back. Then using the freepost envelope provided to return it to the council. Alternatively they can complete the questionnaire online at www.kirkleestalk.org or email earlyhelpconsultation@kirklees.gov.uk
