Financial and sustainability risks

Financial risk and sustainability are fundamental issues facing local government and adult social care.

The care and health improvement team support local authorities and regions to identify, manage and mitigate risk. We support managing risk relating to commissioning and market shaping - the Care Act introduces new duties on local authorities to facilitate a vibrant, diverse and sustainable market for high quality care and support in their area. A local authority's own commissioning and procurement practices should take account of these wider ‘market shaping' duties.
