This item comprises two draft documents; the Adult Social Care Local Account for 2018/19 and the Adult Social Care Market Position Statement for 2019-24


(i)         The Local Account forms a key part of the approach to sector led improvement in adult social care. It is designed to tell citizens how the Council has performed in delivering adult social care against its local priorities over, and the relative areas of spend on services within ASC. It also informs citizens of the challenges and the work planned over the coming year, and this year highlights some of the key elements of the new ASC operating model with a focus on early intervention, prevention and community support.

(ii)       The Market Position Statement summarises supply and demand in Stockport and highlights business opportunities within the care market allowing commissioners and providers to work together to explain and explore the current and future care and support needs of the borough.  The Council’s existing Market Position Statement  was written in 2015 and as part of actively managing the market for adult social care in Stockport, the MPS is being refreshed.


Scrutiny Committee is asked to consider and comment on the draft Local Account and Market Position Statement.
