Consultation on The Reform of Adult Social Care

25th May 2022

Adult social care describes the activities, services and relationships that help us to live an independent, healthy and inclusive life. It is available to any adult with eligible needs who requires assistance due to disability, vulnerability, illness, incapacity or old age, and is designed to promote independence, social inclusion, safeguarding and wellbeing’.

Adult Social Care is a vital part of our Health and Social Care System. The pandemic has shone a light on the invaluable role social care plays in people’s lives and it also revealed the many challenges faced in provision and the need to reform our social care system.

The Department is seeking your views on the consultation paper regarding the Reform of the Adult Social Care System in Northern Ireland.
