Social care is often the number one issue for local authorities given the trilemma of shrinking budgets, an ageing population and rising costs.

Every council faces challenges based on their local population and funding characteristics. But whilst funding is important, councils also need to consider:

  • What kind of care people want in later life and how local authorities can prepare for it
  • How people with disabilities are included in society
  • How to give children a better start in life
  • How to create better products and services for people needing social care

Sustainability and quality

We approach the adult social care market by addressing the three key drivers of sustainability and quality - independent lives, resilient organisations and vibrant care markets. This ensures:

  • the creation of care packages that give users a better experience and maximise their independence
  • councils are the best they can be at managing demand
  • service providers supply commissioners and care users with the right capacity at the right price.
