Cost of care reports

1 February 2023

In May 2022 the council commissioned Peopletoo to support with a Cost of Care exercise for 65+ Care Home and 18+ Domiciliary Care Provision locally, in line with Department of Health and Social Care Guidance released in the spring of 2022.

The cost of care exercise was an opportunity for local authority commissioners and local care providers to work together to understand the true costs of running quality and sustainable care provision in the local area.

The objective of the work undertaken by Peopletoo was to provide the council with reliable information submitted by the Care Home and Domiciliary Care provider market, providing detailed information on providers’ actual delivery costs from April 2022 to inform a sustainable fee rate.

The findings from this exercise are in 3 reports.

We look forward to continued partnership working with providers to meet our statutory duties and to ensure the best approach to cost of care and value for money, in line with our values and commitments as a local authority.
