PROPOSALS to redesign the home care service in Stornoway and Broadbay are being drawn up by the Comhairle.

Consultation has already started with home care staff and service users in the area, and a copy of the consultation documentation will be available for all service users or their representatives and to home care staff, in addition to questionnaires for completion.

Partner organisations and stakeholders will also receive a copy of the consultation documentation for comment.

Meetings are currently being arranged with representatives from the Comhairle's Social and Community Services Department to discuss the redesign proposals in more detail.
