Better Lives Lived












Better Lives Lived is Leeds City Council’s Adult Social Care local account document which gives examples through real-life stories and feedback from communities and service providers of how people maintain their independence and have an improved experience and increasing choice.

Tracey is just one of the people featured.

“I know strength has to come from within me but I’ve needed help to feel that way. Being here has made me feel like someone – like a real woman, not just a statistic.”

Tracey, Transitional Housing Unit.


Leeds aims to be the ‘best city in the UK’ for anyone with social care needs – a city which offers its residents the best support available to maintain their health and wellbeing long into the future.

We call this aspiration Better Lives for people in Leeds.

Better Lives is for everyone whether you personally use social care services or have family or friends who do, work in social care services, are a local business or voluntary sector leader. The document is available here or contact if you would like a copy.
