Consultation on proposed changes to our in-house County Durham Care and Support adult day services


In July 2015, we ran a 6 week public consultation about proposed changes to our in-house County Durham Care and Support adult day services.

The consultation ran from 22nd July to 4th September 2015. 

Recommendations following the consultation

Recommendations on the proposed changes to our in-house County Durham Care and Support adult day services were agreed by our Cabinet agenda and minutes 13 January 2016.  These were:

The implementation of the redesign of County Durham Care and Support day services, meaning that County Durham Care and Support would deliver specialist day services for those with the most complex needs only from the following venues:

  1. Durham Pathways, Pity Me
  2. Spennymoor Pathways, Spennymoor Leisure Centre*
  3. Newton Aycliffe Pathways, Aycliffe Leisure Centre
  4. Peterlee Pathways, Peterlee
  5. Stanley Pathways, Louisa Centre

The following day services would be closed:

  1. Ebony Woodwork Unit, Consett
  2. Chester-le-Street Pathways, Chester-le-Street
  3. Crook Pathways, Crook
  4. Proudfoot Centre, Bishop Auckland*
  5. Annfield Plain Pathways, Annfield Plain
  6. Silver Street, Spennymoor
  7. Consett Pathways, Consett
  8. Harmire Unit, Barnard Castle
  9. Bishop Auckland Pathways, Tindale Crescent
  10. Bracken Hill Centre, Peterlee
  11. Bede Day Centre, Barnard Castle
  12. Stanhope Pathways, Stanhope

* Spennymoor Pathways requires some alterations and a full move to this location cannot happen until this is complete.   The Proudfoot Centre, Bishop Auckland will close once Spennymoor is fully operational. 
  
All sites identified for closure are expected to be fully closed by summer 2016.
