Purpose of Report: This Commissioning Strategy lays out, at a high level, how the City of York Council intends to shift the balance of care in order to meet the growing needs of local people while working with reduced funding. By doing so, the council will focus on promoting well-being and an asset-based community development approach to the commissioning process. Councils with Adult Social Services responsibilities are required by the Care Act of 2014 to oversee the care market, collaborate with providers to develop high-quality services, guarantee capacity to meet local needs, and ensure the safety of service users. The Strategy helps the council to fulfil this duty by setting out our commissioning intentions.


The Executive will be asked to approve the strategy.




                         i.         Approved the all age commissioning strategy and delegate any changes to the strategy to Executive Member for Health, Wellbeing and Adult Social Care and the Corporate Director of Adult services and Integration (DASS).


Reason:     The Commissioning Strategy form part of the core requirements under the Care Act 2014 and the Children’s Act 2004. This Strategy underpins the current Market Position Statement as well as conforming to the expectations of the CQC assurance framework.
