Across the NDTi’s work with people, communities, provider organisations, commissioners and social and health care strategists we have been having ongoing conversations about challenges with commissioning.
We believe that these issues will only be addressed by people working bravely together, within communities and across the silos of ‘client’ groups and health & social care. And so, together with partners from Community Led Support we have codesigned Art of Commissioning.
Art of Commissioning is adopting the common principles developed by the 28 Community Led Support partners.
The programme is a combination of onsite (in communities and system) activity and cross site shared residential events and workshops. It lasts for between twelve and 18 months.
Our first partners are Bradford, Croydon and Leeds. Together we will be exploring alternatives to what is traditionally seen as domiciliary care and home-based support. We began working together in Janaury 2020 and will share our learning as it emerges.
Update: in the winter of 2020 we would like to begin working with three more areas. The programme works on your priorities, but we are especially keen to explore alternatives to institutional care settings.
