Principles met

  • We will explore ways for councils to act as a platform for helping the community to contribute to local outcomes, and to re-think the role of councillors as community connectors, brokers and leaders.

Following the Government’s announcement in December 2021 of more funding for the Adult Social Care market to support sustainability and for local authorities to move towards paying providers a fair rate of care, Peopletoo were commissioned by Doncaster Council to lead the Cost of Care exercise and produce a provisional Market Sustainability Report.

In order to receive future funding, local authorities would need to submit evidence of work they are doing in the following areas:

  • Cost of care exercises for 65+ care homes and 18+ domiciliary care,
  • A provisional market sustainability plan
  • A spend report detailing how funding allocated for 2022 to 2023 is being spent
