Calderdale Council has been ranked as one of the top 15 councils in the country for adult social care.
In a major independent survey, public service consultancy, IMPOWER has named the Council as one of the most productive local authorities nationwide for the second year running.
The IMPOWER index measures which councils are spending their money most effectively and getting the best outcomes for residents.
Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Adult Services and Wellbeing, Cllr Bob Metcalfe, said:
“It’s brilliant news that Calderdale is once again included in IMPOWER’s list of the highest performing councils in relation to adult social care.
“As the service continues to deal with the challenges of increasing demand, an ageing population and challenging budget savings, I’m pleased that we’ve been recognised for using our limited resources in the most effective way and delivering excellent outcomes for our residents.
“We’re the only Yorkshire council to make the list and I’d like to congratulate our talented teams for their continued efforts to support and care for some of Calderdale’s most vulnerable people.”
