Adult Social Care Strategy

Our vision

Our shared vision for social care in Kent is making a positive difference every day, supporting you to live as full and safe a life as possible and make informed choices.

Our principles

Our three core principles will guide how we improve things for the future:

  • Putting the person first - always starting our conversation with the voice of the person, focusing on what the person can do and keeping them at the heart of everything we do; developing working relationships people can trust and helping them to achieve outcomes that are important to them.
  • Improving all the time - find innovative ways to help people and make sure any support offer is tailored to the individual, learning from feedback from the people we support and building continuous improvements together.
  • Measuring what matters - understand how we are making a difference to the life of the person we support by working with them, our staff and partners.

The principles build on the good work that has been done so far by our workforce and partner organisations, but they also challenge us to take action where change is still needed.

This strategy links with the Kent Adult Carers’ Strategy and our other key plans, including Framing Kent’s Future 2022 to 2026 and plans for the wider health and social care landscape.
