Adult Social Care Operations - promoting wellbeing and independence for adults ​

Adult Social Care Operations promotes wellbeing and independence for adults who require care and support and for carers whose needs we have a duty to meet, whilst also seeking to ensure that adults at risk are safeguarded from harm.

We are committed to providing high-quality information, advice and guidance and where required care and support that respects an individual's right to choice and to live a life that makes sense to them.

We use 'strengths based practice' and ensure the 'individual' is at the centre of everything we do. We work collaboratively with partner organisations and the residents of Newham to co-produce and develop services.
