Market development

Our market position statement provides intelligence to service providers on the current and future supply and demand within the market.

The vision for adults living in Redcar and Cleveland is for a sustainable adult social care system which prioritises supporting people to maximise their independence, remain safely in their home and be part of their local community for as long as practical.

There is recognition that effective strategic commissioning can drive transformation to deliver this vision for adult social care.

We are responsible for ensuring there are a range of services available that meet the needs of the population with regards to their social care needs. The method by which we do this is called commissioning.

Market position statement

The market position statement provides intelligence on the current and future supply and demand within the market and aims to enable service providers to make proactive business and investment decisions and to be responsive to local authority commissioning intentions. It also outlines support available to providers to assist in their development.

Our market position statement is available on the Tees Market Position website.

Market failure and provider closure

The care act 2014 places a duty on local authorities to temporarily meet the care and support needs of an adult (including carers) when a registered care provider becomes unable to carry on a regulated activity because of business failure.

Fair cost of care

As part of the government’s adult social care reform agenda, the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) asked all local authorities responsible for adult social care to conduct a Fair cost of care exercise.  We surveyed our residential care homes and home care services about the costs of providing their services.

We completed this exercise in line with the DHSC guidance and submitted our findings along with a draft version of our Market Sustainability Plan to the DHSC on 14 October 2022. 

In January 2023 the DHSC advised that we can published our Annex B documents of the Fair Cost of Care exercise.  These are available below:

Our final Market Sustainability Plan was submitted to the DHSC on 27TH March 2023 and is published below following their guidance:
