SOCIAL CARE: Pilot Scheme

A new way of providing adult social care is launching in Calderdale to boost the health and wellbeing of local residents. Calderdale Council is piloting a new service, known as ‘Better Lives at No. 42’, at 42 Market Street, Halifax.

The shop, which will be run by social workers, opened its doors to the public on Wednesday 3 May 2017.  It will be a place where people can go for information and advice on the services available in Calderdale and will also be an opportunity to meet other people.

The new service aims to provide support in the community at an earlier stage, to prevent or delay health issues in the future. This means people can stay independent for longer and avoid stays in hospital or care homes.
