Session TitleReorganising a LA lead CES in a new Unitary Authority, including urban and very rural areas.

Session Bio – Westmorland and Furness Council is newly formed Unitary Authority made up of half of what was Cumbria County Council. I used to run the Equipment Service for Cumbria. The challenge now is that we have to deliver using half the resource, but the extreme rural nature of the area has led us to look at some creative responses for delivering equipment there, quickly. I’d like to share these ideas and also discuss other authorities practice with the same challenges.

Tom’s Bio:

Tom Burden leads the Community Equipment Service for Westmorland and Furness Council, (part of what was Cumbria County Council, and a new Authority form in April 2023).

Tom is professionally and vocationally qualified in care and Business Management, having worked in
