Shropshire Council

Local Account

The Local Account is Shropshire’s magazine about adult social care. We call our publication ‘Making it Real – our story continues…’. We concentrate on true stories from real people about what’s worked and what hasn’t, and how real experience can trigger change and improvement.

Listening to stories about daily life from the people who make use of adult social care services and support helps the council understand what really happens in people’s lives. Without that understanding it’s difficult to improve.

We’ve taken this idea from an organisation called Think Local Act Personal; their Making it Real initiative sets out what good, personalised care and support should look like.
