Planned Respite Policy consultation

Closing date: 23 December 2019


In February 2018 Cheshire West and Chester Council put in place an interim Respite Policy to allocate planned respite. Prior to the interim policy, there was no clear and consistent process across Adult Social Care for how people were allocated planned respite.It is proposed that the interim policy is now adopted as a long term policy to address this gap.

We want to hear the views of all service users and stakeholders on the proposed policy

How can I get involved and have my say?

The consultation is open from 30 September until 23 December 2019.

You can tell us your views by taking part in our online survey

Before completing the survey please ensure you have read the planned respite policy summary document.

You can also complete a paper copy or easy read version of the questionnaire. To request a copy:
