Why are you doing this now?

We have not previously established a specific commissioning arrangement for Supported Living, and need to do so now to secure quality and value for money across this area of business.

This has become increasingly relevant as Supported Living alternatives to residential care have become more widespread, and the duties towards safeguarding and Fair and Affordable Care Policies remain key priorities for us.

We propose to establish this commissioning arrangement for Supported Living across all care groups, wherever social care assessments validate the option of a shared on-site service as the best way of meeting needs. Work will start with learning disability building-based services, because this is where the evidence of need for shared service is already strongest and where the model is most typically used.
