Redbridge Council has been named among the top 15 “most productive” local authorities in the country for adult social care provision.

The IMPOWER INDEX considers the performance of councils against spending per head.

Councillor Mark Santos, cabinet member for health, social care, mental health and the ageing, said: "It is great to see Redbridge feature in this prestigious list. We are providing great care to some of our most vulnerable residents and we are offering them a better quality of life.
