Meeting to discuss future of adult social care in Bridport

Dorset Echo: Meeting to discuss future of adult social care in Bridport Meeting to discuss future of adult social care in Bridport

A PUBLIC meeting will be held to discuss the future of adult social care in Bridport.

A consultation is being launched after Dorset County Councillors approved a range of options at a cabinet meeting.

Residents can look at what is being proposed and have their say at a public meeting at Bridport Town Hall from 2pm to 3.30pm on Monday, December 16.

A second public meeting will be held towards the end of January. Council officials will be on hand for residents to find out more about the proposals at Bucky Doo Square on January 8 and 15 and people can also have their say online at or pick up a questionnaire at Bridport Town Council, the Tourist Information Office, Bridport Library or the Bridport Local Office.

The county council wants the public to get involved and help shape the plans for a £4.7m investment in local services, including day services, care for older people and support for people to stay healthy and independent in the community for as long as possible. The options include a new purpose-built community hub for day services and the possible replacement of the services provided by Sidney Gale Care Home. County councillor for Bridport Ros Kays said: “Finding a solution for residential accommodation and dementia care for the elderly will affect all of us in the long term, not just older residents. “If you are unable to make any of the consultation events please respond online or email me direct at r.kayes@”
