Have you seen our recent publication on commissioning and micro-enterprise providers.

 

Its pointing toward how things could be done and indicates where some people are getting it right despite so much working against the small provider.

 

When the Care Bill becomes law, commissioners will have a duty to promote a range of services that meet local people’s needs. This won’t be easy with tightening budgets and the drive to commission services ‘efficiently’, which many areas have seen in terms of having fewer contracts to manage. In addition, councils will have duties to support the development of preventative services and to help individuals to use Direct Payments and personal budgets to purchase support which is of their choosing.

 

Shared Lives Plus, supported by the Department of Health and endorsed by sector partnership Think Local Act Personal, has produced “Commissioning for Provider Diversity – A Guide”, which will help councils commission in a way which gets better value for money through having a wide range of local services, not just a few large contracts
