Adult Social Care and Public Health

At Surrey County Council, we have a responsibility to support, care for and protect the most vulnerable people in the community, as well as providing information and advice to all Surrey residents.


Adult Social Care

Our vision for Adult Social Care is to maintain people’s independence and wellbeing through personalised care and support and by working collaboratively with our partners to deliver better outcomes at less cost.

Delivering this vision will mean people in Surrey;

  • Stay healthy and are supported to live in their local community with choice and control
  • Know about and can access information and services to help prevent and postpone the need for care and support
  • Experience social care that is responsive to their needs and seamless between different parts of the system
  • Remain safe and feel satisfied with the quality of their care and support
