Local Account 2013-15

We are pleased to produce the fourth annual local account of our performance on delivering Adult Social Care services to Merton residents.

What is a Local Account?

A local account is an annual statement that all councils who provide adult social care services are encouraged to produce as part of the Local Government Association’s (LGA) programme called ‘Towards Excellence in Adult Social Care’ (TEASC).
This is a sector-led initiative that builds on the self-assessment and improvement work already carried out by councils. Local accounts are a means of reporting back to local people on performance and are a useful way of informing self- improvement activity locally.

The 2013-15 local account explains how much the council spends on Adult Social Care, what we spend money on and what we are doing along with its future plans for improvement. It also represents a quality self-assessment and includes details about outcomes achieved for our service users, compares performance with other local authorities and provides customer case studies. We believe this account provides a meaningful way of reporting the quality of Adult Social Care Services in Merton.
