Joined-up help

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Youngster Creates Tourism Pamphlet -

KCC is propos­ing to com­bine two of its ser­vices to create a more joined up sys­tem for help­ing peo­ple with men­tal health is­sues to live in­de­pen­dent lives.

The county coun­cil sup­ports peo­ple liv­ing with men­tal health is­sues by pro­vid­ing dif­fer­ent types of sup­port.

This con­sul­ta­tion is about the fu­ture of Sup­port­ing In­de­pen­dence Ser­vice (SIS) with a £2.8m bud­get and Hous­ing Re­lated Sup­port (HRS) ser­vice, with a £2.5m bud­get. Both con­tracts end in Septem­ber. This pro­vides the op­por­tu­nity to com­bine the bud­get al­lo­cated to these sep­a­rate ser­vices to create a new ser­vice which will bet­ter meet the needs of peo­ple with men­tal health is­sues.

KCC in­vites the pub­lic to give their views on the pro­posed Men­tal Health Pro­mot­ing In­de­pen­dence Ser­vice by Fri­day, March 24. Visit www.kent.gov.uk/ men­tal­health­con­sul­ta­tion.
