Redbridge Council has been declared the best local authority in the country for adult social care. Public service consultancy, iMPOWER, ranked the council the most productive nationwide in a major independent survey, published last week. Redbridge topped the charts for “spending their money most effectively” and “getting the best outcomes for citizens.”

iMPOWER ranks 150 local authorities by examining performance using 25 indicators across three categories - Older Adults, All Age Disability, and the Health and Social Care.  As well celebrating top spot for social care, Redbridge was rated the sixth most productive council overall in the annual report compiled by iMPOWER in November 2018. Council Leader Cllr Jas Athwal said: “This council has responded to austerity by upping its game, improving productivity and making sure every pound counts. Through our new budget we will continue to focus on prevention and early intervention to help people live independent lives. Despite austerity, we will continue to drive the best results for Redbridge.”
