focus adult social care is a social work led practice that is independent to the local authority but work very closely with North East Lincolnshire Council and other agencies across the Health & Social Care Sector.
North East Lincolnshire has embraced major changes in how social work is delivered in recent years and North East Lincolnshire is at the forefront of delivering this change.
A social enterprise organisation
focus is a Community Interest Company, limited by guarantee, which is a form of Social Enterprise and means that the company is owned by its members and managed by a Board of Governors drawn from the workforce, community and stakeholder groups.
All staff have an opportunity to become a member and to take an active part in the shaping of the organisation and its future development. Our members have a vote at general meetings, view annual accounts, elect employee governors and influence any important changes to the organisation. We currently have a membership of over 100 members of staff.
At a time when Directors of Adult Social Services are increasingly drawn from other professions, we are an organisation led by social workers and social work values.
