Stockport Fair Cost of Care Report and Market Sustainability Plan pdf icon PDF 167 KB

To consider a report of the Director of Adult Services.


In December 2021 the Government published a white paper, People at the Heart of Care, that outlined a 10-year vision that puts personalised care and support at the heart of adult social care. 1Following the publication of the White Paper, the Department of Health and Social Care announced the Market Sustainability and Fair Cost of Care Fund for the primary purpose of supporting Local Authorities to prepare their markets for the impact of charging reform. 


The Cost of Care Report (Annex B) details the outcome of the exercises undertaken with the Care Home (age 65+) market and the Domiciliary Care (age 18+) market, collating, and producing a median average of the costs incurred by those providers submitting in delivering care.


The Market Sustainability Plan (Annex C) describes the Council’s assessment of the current sustainability of local care markets, the assessment of the impact of future market changes and the Council’s plans for these markets to address the sustainability issues identified, including how fair cost of care funding will be used to address these issues over the next 1 to 3 years.


The Scrutiny Committee is recommended to comment on and note the report.
