The Day Opportunities Project has developed a ‘Case for Change’, working in co-production with people with lived experience, their families and carers, members of the public and a range of wider stakeholders.  Evidence to support the Case for Change has been gathered through a strategic needs assessment, a review of best practice and innovation, and a public view seeking exercise.  This has led to the formulation of 6 key priorities to underpin the future strategy, including 25 proposals for implementation over a period of the next 5 years 2023-2028.

BCP Council Adult Social Care Market Sustainability Plan pdf icon PDF 311 KB

Since the last update to Members and in line with government requirements, working with an independent organisation, officers have completed and returned the Fair Cost of Care exercises for both 65+ care homes and 18+ domiciliary care provision to government.

The results of both exercises identified that the Council framework rates for 18+ domiciliary care were below the median average and benchmark rates from the exercise, but that the Council was already paying above average rates when spot purchasing residential care placements. 

Consequently, the funding from government to support a move towards a Fair Cost of Care has been targeted towards supporting people at home, rather than increasing residential care fees.

In addition, a draft Market Sustainability Plan has been produced, which was submitted in October 2022 as required. The plan includes work planned or underway across Adult Social Care Commissioning to help reduce the reliance on long term care, as well as action underway to support the local care sector with recruitment, skills development, and fees.

Provider engagement workshops are planned for 21 and 22 February after which a final version of the plan will be produced for publication by 27 March in accordance with government requirements.
