Market Position Statement

Purpose of Report: The purpose of the market position statement is to inform and shape the care market. This includes articulating what we as an authority would like to see developed further and what services we would like to see a reduction of. The market position statement is the start of a market shaping process to ensure services meet the needs of our population whilst taking into consideration our model of delivery and financial constraints. Market shaping is a legal requirement of the care act (2014) and is aimed to understand our local market of care providers and stimulate a diverse range of care and support services to ensure that people and their carers have choice over how their needs are met and that they are able to achieve the things that are important to them.

The Executive is asked to note and agree the content of the market position statement.
