Progress for Providers toolkit

This toolkit  is published alongside a companion paper: Individual Service Funds for Homecare, which offers advice on moving forward from the traditional model of 'time and task' within the constraints faced by commissioners and providers.

The development of both the paper and the toolkit was sponsored and supported by Mears Care Limited and the United Kingdom Homecare Association (UKHCA). Two local authorities were partners in the project - Wirral Borough Council and Lancashire County Council.

This project was initiated to help people to make progress in one of the most challenging areas of adult social care to truly personalise - homecare. Following discussions about practically helpful approaches, a stakeholder group of representatives of people receiving, commissioning and providing support, has come together with In Control and Helen Sanderson Associates to explore the specific opportunities presented by Individual Service Funds.
