How good are my Local Authority Social Care Services?
If you are receiving care, looking after someone who receives care, or just planning for your future care, it’s worth finding out how well our social care services are performing.
You can find out how care services in your area are performing against measures in the Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework (ASCOF).

This will let you find out how people and their carers receiving funded care and support in North Tyneside rate:
- Their quality of life
- Their satisfaction with care services
- Feeling safe
Alongside these are the levels of social services that the local authority offers, such as:
- The number of people receiving direct payments
- The number of permanent admissions to care homes
- Delayed transfers of care from hospitals
You can also compare these with national and regional averages, to see whether we are doing well, or could be performing better.
We also regularly survey our customers who receive services and care packages from us. This feedback comes direct from the public and helps us to measure what we are doing and how we perform, it also informs how we develop future services.
We also regularly publish our latest corporate and service performance reports and survey results.
Local Accounts set out to be a true reflection of what Adult Social Care looks like in North Tyneside.
The reports are a reflection of customer views and experience, it shows where services are delivered to a high standard and also where there is room for improvement.
The North Tyneside Adult Social Care Annual Local Account will tell you:
- About the adult social care services delivered last year
- Which people we have supported during the year and how we have done this through useful case studies
- Some facts and figures so you can see if we did a good job
- Plans for next year
Following on from our previous Local Accounts we have carried out an extensive programme of consultation and engagement with a wide range of customers and partners on changes to our services and priorities for the coming year. This feedback has been used to shape and inform the content of future Local Accounts.
We want to continue to build on this approach in the coming year and encourage more customer feedback to help us understand where our local priorities lie and where our focus should be.
Therefore, we would welcome input from all residents of the borough to get involved in helping shape the way in which Adult Social Care services are delivered in North Tyneside.
