Care and Support West produce a report each year on the Cost Pressures facing the sector every year; these are used in dialogue where we represent the sector. It is sent to both Local Authority and CCG commissioners within B&NES, Bristol, North Somerset and South Glos as well as relevant councillors and local MPs.
These are difficult times and we represent the entire sector in this dialogue, not just members. If you are not currently a Care and Support West member and are interested in supporting this work then you can find out more about C&SW membership
Our new 2018/19 Cost Pressures report can be found here
Developed from responses to a questionnaire, the report takes the stormy national discussions on the perfect storm brewing in relation to the funding of Social Care, and gives a local viewpoint, looking at what can be done to avoid it.
We urge you to read the report. There is some useful information contained within it which can help you make your own case in relation to funding and to respond to the ongoing consultations
If you have any comments or feedback about the report then you can get in touch by emailing Mik Alban at email@example.com.
