The Home First Service
To seek the views of the Adults Wellbeing
Scrutiny Committee of the Home First Service. The Home First
service commenced in November 2017 following alignment of two
services – the rapid response service which was a delivered
by an internal Herefordshire Council team and an external
commissioned reablement provision. The services were aligned to
enable more capacity and to provide a streamlined service.
The primary objective of the Home First service is to deliver a strength based model, which is built upon an enabling ethos, to support people to regain skills and independence. The aim is to assist people on their journey to regain independence and prevent the need for long term care.
