The Council has proposed replacing the Adult’s Partnership Boards with a new Adult’s Health and Care Forum. This would meet quarterly and be open to all current participants, plus the public, for them to find out and comment on plans for health and social care services. The Carers Partnership Board will now only convene when there is specific reason, to discuss matters that would not be well served by the new Forum. The Carers Partnership Board promotes the contributions of carers to the communities they live in, ensures the views of carers are heard, acted on and feedback is given and its mission is to make Bedford Borough a place where carers are clearly valued, supported and cared for. Terms of reference (PDF) Partnership boards were suspended due to COVID-19 and we will be resuming the activity later in 2022.
