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.
These conversations have reflected a common view that commissioning, as it currently exists, has a number of common issues:
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.
Recognising that commissioning is not a science but an art, Art of Commissioning will:
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 March 2020 and will share our learning as it emerges.
