What is Better Lives?

A strategy for the future of adult social care in Buckinghamshire

At Buckinghamshire Council, our vision is for people to lead “Better Lives”. We want to ensure that people stay as independent as they can for as long as possible and to offer extra support when needed to help people regain their independence.

As part of our Better Lives strategy, we focus on three key areas:

Better Lives outcomes

Both now and in the future:

  • more people will live independently without the need for long-term services
  • fewer people will need to be in residential or nursing care
  • more people will stay living independently after leaving hospital
  • young people moving from children’s services will be better prepared for adulthood
  • more people will have control over their support through Direct Payments
