Ethical and People-centred Commissioning

Please see below for an opportunity to join an online event being held by Iriss in Scotland, which showcases the innovative work being done in Gwynedd to redesign their home care services.

Join us online on 9 February (12.30-2pm) to learn how support is planned and purchased, and how strategic commissioning can be more ethical, sustainable and people-centred.

The Scottish social care and support system is going through a period of change. We’re negotiating our way through pandemic recovery and travelling towards the implementation of the Independent Review of Adult Social Care (IRASC) recommendations. Commissioning of services must prepare for the creation of a National Care Service.

We are pleased to welcome guest speakers from Wales. The Gwynedd social care team and local health board have been redesigning services, and developing a people-centred approach to commissioning homecare that moves away from a ‘time and task’ model to more personalised and collaborative support.  Hear about this from commissioner, supported person and provider perspectives.

This event is for anyone committed to supporting innovation and change to support independent, inclusive living:

  • Practitioners, managers and commissioners of social care and support, particularly of interest to people working in the areas of community-based support and care at home.
  • Supported people and membership organisations.
  • Policy makers, researchers

It is the second in a series of events to support a new way of thinking to deliver the ambitions of the Independent Review of Adult Social Care.
