Markets and modelling – understanding the local care market
Two interactive tools have been developed to support councils in understanding the shape of their local care market – for Care Homes and Care and Support at Home. These draw on the monthly information published by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) on registered social care providers.
Use of resources approach
Working collaboratively with councils, the LGA and ADASS have led the development of a robust and transparent approach to evaluating the use of resources in adult social care to support sector led improvement. The 13-step approach uses a set of questions to promote informed self-assessment and improvement, taking into account local conditions and bringing in challenge at each step. It helps councils to identify areas for further exploration, where spend and/or performance is significantly different to regional or national averages.
