Enabling Fulfilled Lives - Tom

How we work

Adult Social Care has a wide range of teams and services supporting local people to live fulfilled lives. Our teams are made up of Social Care Practitioners, Social Workers and Occupational therapists, with team and service managers.

We have excellent working partnerships with our colleagues in health right through to primary care, including the integrated mental health and learning disability teams and our acute hospital teams, as well as partnerships with our Housing and Community’s directorate, and our Community and Voluntary sector.

Strengths based practice

We are in the early stages of innovating the three conversations model here in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, to help us ensure practice is strengths based, relational and personalised to the people we work alongside. Our innovation sites are helping us to learn how we can embed this across our teams and services, to enable fulfilled, safe and independent lives.

Our Teams 

We have a range of teams including a Long-Term Conditions teams working with people aged 18 and over in the community or at the two acute hospitals in Bournemouth and Poole.

We have Integrated Learning Disability and Mental Health teams across our conurbation and a Preparing for Adulthood team working with young people aged 18-25.

We have dedicated Adults with Autism, Approved Mental Health Professionals, Continuing Health Care, Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards and our Safeguarding Hubs, however colleagues across all teams also undertake safeguarding work. Specialist services in our Safeguarding Hubs also include dedicated teams working with people who are homeless, people using drugs and alcohol, and an Assertive Engagement team for people who find it less easy to engage with our service.
