In August 2016, learning disability leads at all councils with adult social services responsibility (CASSR) were asked to complete an online survey regarding delivery of the Transforming Care programme.
The aim of the survey was to:
- Identify the key challenges for local authorities as part of Transforming Care Partnerships
- Better understand the support needs of local authorities to inform the LGA support offer, and the wider Transforming Care programme sustainable improvement programme
The survey was completed by 68 councils, representing 45 per cent of those with responsibility.
Following analysis of survey responses, a series of information packs have now been published:
The survey asked about the effectiveness of working arrangements with partners and level of involvement by Learning Disability Partnership Boards or equivalent
The survey asked about local market capacity, market position statements and preferred provider frameworks as part of the Transforming Care work
The survey asked about the impact of the Local Housing Allowance cap on supported housing and on the Transforming Care programme
The survey asked about the effectiveness of working arrangements within Transforming Care Partnerships in relation to meeting the needs of children and young people
The survey asked about the support needs of councils in delivering on the Transforming Care programme and in exercising market shaping duties.
The survey asked about confidence levels in delivering all nine principles of the national service model.
The survey asked about confidence in the funding to deliver the Transforming Care programme.
Information packs about the key challenges and the support needs of councils have been produced.
