  *   People getting self-directed support
  *   Carer reported quality of life
  *   Social care users having as much contact as they would like
  *   Social care users feeling safe and secure as a result of services provided

Cllr. Paul Doughty, Conservative spokesperson for health and adult social care said:  “This is really positive news and our hats are off to all of our staff and our partner agencies who’ve worked hard to make this incredible improvement possible. Clearly these are only statistics and what is really important are the services we provide to support our community. York’s Conservative-led administration will continue to do all it can to put front line services at the centre of all of our efforts.”
