Extra Care Housing Consultation

Bristol City Council is reviewing the care and support services delivered in ECH that are funded by the council’s Adult Social Care budget. The council is looking at what services are delivered and how the council would like to commission (buy) these services in the future.

An ECH Scheme is where people have their own self-contained homes, their own front door, have a legal right to occupy the property, and have the provision of an onsite care and support service.

Getting care and support services right for people in ECH is important because the council wants to make sure the services are right for service users now and in the future.
