Event description

Description

There are challenges to providing daycare including people who use services having changing expectations; a real desire to give people more choice and control over the services and support they receive; a policy focus on working more closely with communities, providing support to people who have and pool individual budgets; and, of course, funding pressures.

  • Using real coproduction in both the planning and the delivery of services to ensure they are flexing to meet fluid demands and are ready for the future.
  • Using all the opportunities available in a wide range of different geographical, employment and social communities and seeing themselves as facilitators of opportunity for all local people rather than simply providers of a set of services to particular groups.
  • Using reduced budgets to offer the same or more services, by being more flexible and creative about working with individuals to achieve their aspirations.
  • The impact of personal budgets / self-directed supports on the choices people can make.
  • Buildings, transport and community accessibility: seeing day opportunities as an integral part of the local community's resources.
  • Developing the local market, from which people can source a wide range of support and services.
  • Understanding best practice in the commissioning and development of services (for example employment supports) that actually deliver real jobs.

Whilst the detail for each ‘client’ group and for each kind of organisation (voluntary, charitable, statutory) may be different, these pressures and opportunities are common. The answers will be too.

We want to work together with colleagues, people using services, and communities from the whole sector locally to help ensure the future day time support offered is seamless and robust enough to last.
