Top Tips: Commissioning for Market Diversity has been published by Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) and aims to help council commissioners focus on the work they need to do in developing a diverse care and support market that reflects the local population and provides choice for people.
Top Tips offers examples and links to further information and a short series of questions that will help councils assess their progress in meeting Care Act market shaping duties.
PCG Care Solutions features as a case study in the paper providing an example of a regional approach to marketplace development across Yorkshire and Humber using the Connect to Support platform. The case study can be found on page 29.
The publication is part of a suite of resources commissioned by the Department of Health in partnership with the Local Government Association and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services to support local government in implementing the Care Act.
