Our adult care team is going the extra mile over Christmas to provide key services to residents across the borough.
Staff are working throughout the festive period to deal with emergencies and ensure people are supported and cared for.
Our emergency number for adult care services, 0300 303 8875, will be staffed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day and the weekend of Saturday, 29 December 2018 and Sunday, 30 December 2018.
Our dedicated service means that support will be available throughout the festive break.
On the other days over the Christmas period, the usual adult care phone line, 0300 303 8886, will be available for service users to get in touch between 8.45am-4.45pm. Outside of those times, people needing support should call the emergency number.
Our dedicated service means that help and support will be available, to those most in need, throughout the festive break.
Councillor Iftikhar Ahmed, our cabinet member for adult care, said: “The excellent service we are providing for our residents over Christmas underlines what a dedicated and hard-working team of staff we have across adult care. No one should feel isolated, alone or vulnerable over the festive period. We are proud of the service we offer not just at Christmas, but all year round.”
