Older People Best Practice

London Councils wants to promote best practice for boroughs to better support older people living in their communities.

Older People Best Practice in London

The Health and Adult Services team is responsible for London Councils’ policy work on health, public health, adult social care and health and social care integration.

Our priorities include:

  • Lobbying for adequate funding to maintain and reform adult social care services in line with the 2014 Care Act;
  • Supporting London Health and Wellbeing Boards to become effective local system leaders and shapers;
  • Encouraging and enabling health and social care integration, to enable care to be shaped around the needs of individuals not organisations;
  • Maximising the opportunities provided by public health being based in local government and playing our part in addressing London wide challenges.
