Minutes:

11.1   Cllr Carole Allaway Martin sought Cabinet approval for the publishing of the council’s Adult Social Care Market Position Statement 2024 which set out the challenges for the provision of adult social care over the next twenty years.

 

11.2   The Care Act 2014 placed a statutory duty on local authorities to ensure a sufficiency of adult social care provision to meet demand for the whole population. Whilst there is no duty to provide a Market Position Statement it was considered good practice and one way of ensuring sufficiency. She thanked officers for their work on the document.

 

11.3   The purpose of the document was to describe our current market demand and capacity, analyse projected changes over the next twenty years and inform what the council proposed to do in the future to respond to the challenges identified. The new Market Position Statement would be published on the council’s website, and the Council intended to periodically update it as the market picture developed over the next few years.

 

11.4   The key messages were contained within the report. The Market Position Statement identified the challenges for adult social care over the coming years and pointed to the direction of travel for the council in terms of addressing those. There was an increased need to promote health and wellbeing to ensure that people entered older age in good health, and then stayed in good health for as long as possible
