Telford & Wrekin -Making It Real

Telford & Wrekin Council have opportunities available for people to be part of “Making It Real”

What is Making it Real?

Making It Real is a framework or guide that sets out what good, person-focused care and support should look like from the point of view of individuals with lived experience. It recognises that people want a life, not just a service and that conversations with people should be based on what matters most to them. Support must be built up around a person’s strengths, their own networks of support and greater use made of resources available in the local community.

About Making It Real in Telford:

Telford, Making It Real Board was set up in January 2018 and is made up of people who use adult services or who are interested in the development of Adult Social Care (ASC) in Telford and Wrekin. The Board works in co-production with council leaders, making recommendations on how different service areas can improve and develop, with the aim of seeing services progress towards more person-centred, community-based support.

Experts by experience

As ‘Experts by Experience’ the Board is uniquely placed to ensure that council leaders are kept in touch with the day to day realities for people who use services and their carers and that local people are placed at the heart of decisions around the future of Adult Social Care in the borough.

Get involved and have your say

Telford and Wrekin Council would like people who use Adult Social Care to work with them ensuring that those who have lived experience are heard, valued and that they have the opportunity to inform, question and challenge our developments and practice. The Making It Real board meetings will take place on:

  • Thursday 12 September 2019 from 2 pm – 4 pm at Ketley Community Centre
  • Thursday 17 October 2019 from 2 pm – 4 pm at Ketley Community Centre
  • Thursday 14 November 2019 from 2 pm – 4 pm at Ketley Community Centre
  • Thursday 12 December 2019 from 2 pm – 4 pm at Ketley Community Centre.

End Date:
31st July 2019

Start Time:

End Time:

Voting for your local and national representatives in Government is an essential part of involvement in society. Every Council has to periodically review the suitability and consider how accessible Polling Stations are to people with specific needs. Whilst doing this they should take into account  any comments or complaints received about the facilities.

Telford and Wrekin  Council has the responsibility for organising elections locally and has 77 locations across the Borough known as Polling Stations. These can be seen on this interactive map.

They have launched a review of all 77 of our Polling stations and are welcoming comments on all of them. However there are a number of polling areas where Telford and Wrekin Council are particularly considering changes:

1. Current Polling station: Lawley Village Primary Academy, Lawley

Proposal: to locate alternative Polling station due to parental complaints regarding school closure on election days. Only identified potential location is Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Lawley. (See this document Returning_Officer_s_Proposal )

2. Current Polling station: Ketley Bank Community Centre, Main Road, Ketley Bank

Proposal to relocate polling station to Queenswood Primary School, Yates Way, Ketley Bank, Telford TF2 0AZ due to future disposal of Ketley Bank Community Centre.

3. Current Polling station: St Patricks Catholic Primary School, North Road, Wellington

Proposal to relocate polling station from St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School, North Road, Wellington to Wellington Children’s Centre, North Road, Wellington, TF1 3ES

4. Current Polling station: The Red Lion Annex, Holyhead Road, Wellington

Proposals to relocate to Sir John Bayley Club, Haygate Road, Wellington as previous polling station has more complex access requirements and the facilities require maintenance that is not scheduled to take place.
