Social Care Framework - Commissioning Strategy consultation

Birmingham City Council wants to know what you think about proposed changes to the way we buy and allocate adult social care packages. This consultation also wants your views on how independent care providers are managed, and includes home support services for children and young people with a disability.

We currently commission care and support services through two framework contracts. These contracts are used to buy; home support services for adults and children; residential care (with and without nursing) for adults over 65 with assessed eligible care and support needs; and in some cases in a supported living setting.

We're looking to make improvements around quality and price and to support people to live better lives and to have greater choice and control about the care they receive.

Proposals include; supported living services extended to all adults with assessed eligible care and support needs and that all care providers are quality checked.
