Market Position Statement
The vision for adults living in Redcar and Cleveland is for a sustainable adult social care system which supports people to maximise their independence, remain safely in their own home and be part of the local community for as long as economically possible. There is recognition that effective strategic commissioning can drive transformation to deliver this vision for Adult Social Care.
People Services 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.
A Market Position Statement provides intelligence to service providers on the current and future supply and demand within the market. It summarises the commissioning priorities and highlights the models of service provision that the Local Authority wishes to develop. The Market Position Statement 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.
