This workshop is aimed towards providers of domiciliary care services.
As life expectancy continues to rise, so does the median age of the population across Wales and the UK as a whole, bringing with it an ever increasing need for domiciliary care support to help people remain as independent as possible in their own homes. While this may present an abundance of opportunities for providers, there are also challenges faced for Local Authority commissioning teams to ensure value for money is obtained for tax payers, and more importantly, that providers are properly assessed and scrutinised in order to safeguard the interests of vulnerable and frail people requiring support.
The purpose of this workshop is to look in detail at the business development side of domiciliary care, specifically examining the scope of opportunities that are available in regards to domiciliary care across Wales and beyond. Discussion will focus on addressing some of the challenges or perceptions about bidding for work across the sector, as well as provide highly practical guidance and advice to providers on how you can flourish through the bidding and tendering processes required in order to secure work.
Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is specifically aimed at providers of domiciliary care services. It is suitable for both large and small existing providers, as well as new operators that are potentially interested in breaking in to the market.
The content is aimed towards individuals that are involved in a business development capacity at private sector domiciliary care providers, such as: the owners or director of the business, service managers, business development officers or any individual that is involved in arranging and coordinating work. The workshop is also relevant as CPD for bringing new or less experienced members of staff up to speed on commissioning and procurement processes.
