Liverpool City Council

Liverpool City Council Adult Social Services provide care and support services for people across the city.

The council has been a key partner in the Liverpool 5G Consortium, identifying the need for new social care solutions and areas where technology can make a measurable difference. They have steered the project to focus on service user needs and technologies that can meet them, rather than identifying a technology and then finding a use for it. The council has played a vital role in liaising with service users, supported accommodation providers, home care providers and care homes.

Liverpool City Council has provided access to street furniture and the fibre backhaul used in the project, whilst liaising with relevant contractors on the installation of 5G mesh network equipment across the Kensington area.

All the devices tested during the health and social care project have been trialled with Liverpool City Council service users.
