Market Position Statement 2023 - 2033

Key messages

  • We are shaping a market for the future to enable people to live a great life at home and in doing so prevent, reduce and delay the need for long-term health and care support.
  • We see all of our commissioning through a Community Led Support Community Led Support is a strengths-based approach which means we seek to enable people to live a great life by building on what they are able to do and provide just enough help and support for them to continue to live the life they want.
  • Providers should start to develop models and services which take a strengths-based approach and focus on providing a good experience and achieving the outcomes people want.
  • We want to support people to live at home and in their community for as long as possible. We want to grow services that take a preventative and re-enabling approach in the way they are delivered, to reduce and delay the need for longer term care and support services.
  • We want to develop and grow our supported accommodation offer which provides housing and care options for people to continue to live a great life.
  • We value providers who want to work in partnership with us, to continually improve quality and adapt models of care and support.
  • Providers must share in our ambitions to reduce inequalities, promote fairness and opportunity for all.
  • Social value is a key part of our commissioning and procurement activities across our services. When tendering, providers must take care to demonstrate how they will meet our social value requirements. Our Social Value Portal contains more information about our approach.
  • We expect all providers we commission to pay the Local Living Wage.
  • We take a trauma-informed approach, and we expect providers to adopt the principles of our way of working.
  • We value our Community Sector and are keen to create the space and environment for it to flourish. Our Compact sets out our commitment to supporting and working with Community, Voluntary and Faith organisations including how we will commission services from them.
  • Tackling the climate emergency is a key aspect of the Council Plan. We want to work with providers who consider the impact on the climate and who have a low carbon footprint or are actively working to reduce it.
