High level of satisfaction with local social care services

A national report on local authority performance indicators has shown high levels of satisfaction with social care services in the Scottish Borders.

The Local Government Benchmarking Framework measures the performances of all 32 councils and evaluates the delivery and cost of services as well as satisfaction with them.

Over 87% of adults supported at home felt the service and support received had an impact in improving or maintaining their quality of life – the Scottish average is 81%. More than 84% per cent of local social care service users rated the care and support received as “excellent” or “good”. Find out more.
