As the government pushes ahead with STPs, the devolution of supported housing funding under LHA reform and now a review into social care in England which will result in a Green Paper later this year this workshop will examine the way ahead for both commissioners and providers.

We are adapting our model and shifting our place within the health and social care market to deliver care services that truly make a difference. Extra funding for social care is clearly needed but only by looking at innovative, new ways of working will we be able to ensure social care works as smoothly as possible for patients and as efficiently as possible for the taxpayer. That means working closely with other partners to tackle issues like out of area placements or delayed discharges.

Working within constrained budgets and significant demographic shifts we have seen the provision of care thrust into the headlines on an unprecedented scale. In this workshop, experienced providers Home Group will look at how the sector can adapt. Housing Associations alone care, house and support over 600,000 vulnerable people a year. Home Group is privileged to be responsible for the care of 30,000 of those clients each year across 500 services.
