Market Position Statement 2015-2016
1.5 Who is the Market Position Statement for?
The Market Position Statement (MPS) is a document for all adult social care providers in Calderdale. It sets out the profile of services available along with the current supply and demand for them and outlines the model of support the Council wishes to encourage.
The MPS is the first step towards the Council and all other social care providers in the area working together to address market capacity and capability. The Market Position Statement identifies pressure points and together we can decide on how the best and most creative services can be provided. The MPS focuses on regulated services such as home care, day services, shared lives schemes and care homes, as well as describing trends within the unregulated market such as direct payments, individual service funds, personal assistants and supported living schemes.
