The story so far...

Bharat is managing a new generic team which brings together social workers and care managers from three former teams – the team Bharat used to manage, and the physical disability and learning disability teams.

The purpose of the reorganisation is to:

  • reduce management costs
  • remove barriers between the specialisms, so that the new team can deliver a more holistic service
  • improve assessment and care planning practice so that more people take up direct payments rather than funding from the local authority

Bharat’s brief:

  • Ensure that the team works together to provide support for all of the service users and their families
  • Oversee a change in practice which enables service users and their families to rely more on their own resources and use direct payments to supplement them.
