Community Support Market Position Statement

With social care and health in the council we are moving towards integration between the services. We want current and potential providers of care and support services to understand the present and future demands of the service. We need to discover how we all can work together to face the challenges ahead of us.

We have a responsibility to find more effective ways of making public money go further and deliver better outcomes. This is more important than ever in the current challenging financial climate.

We want to restore and strengthen a diverse market for care that offers people choice. A care that allows them to be supported to remain as independent as possible, for as long as possible and enjoy a good quality of life within their local communities.  To do this, we need a wide range of high quality services.

The Market Position Statement for Community Support Services will form part of our approach to shaping and development for care and support in Kent. The document will define our relationship with the market and our residents to offer greater choice in service delivery and greater transparency about the quality of care on offer.

The Market Position Statement is currently under review as of November 2019.
