Coventry's Market Position Statement (MPS) for Adult Social Care presents information on the social care market within the city.
It also sets out how the market needs to develop in order to meet the challenges of providing a modern social care service to the residents of the city in the context of increased demand, policy and legislative changes.
The MPS is intended to be of use to providers of social care in understanding potential opportunities for future service provision and providing information to enable a constructive dialogue with the local authority.
In describing the current market, sections are included for each 'type' of care and support in Coventry. These currently have a familiar feel to them in terms of care homes, home support, housing with care etc.
However, as the Coventry approach to personalisation develops, this structure is likely to change. We will expect to see the emergence of new models of supply including social enterprises, community interest organisations and the increased use of telecare and assistive technologies.
Coventry City Council are updating its Market Position Statement and will be publishing the revised version shortly.
