ADASS East - Regional Market Development Priorities

The Regional Market Shaping & Commissioning Network wants to know what you think about the Draft Regional Care Market Development Priorities. To help us find out what you think the Network has  also appointed an organisation called Curators of Change to do some listening events across the Region as well as running the surveys.   

This is an opportunity to tell the network what you think about social care.

Please note – this Survey is not only for people living and working in Essex. Essex County Council have kindly agreed to host the survey for the network.

We want to hear from anyone who lives or works in any of the 11 local authority areas across the Eastern Region.

These are:

  • Bedford Borough Council

  • Cambridgeshire County Council

  • Central Bedfordshire Council 

  • Essex County Council

  • Hertfordshire County Council

  • Luton Borough Council

  • Norfolk County Council

  • Peterborough City Council 

  • Southend Borough Council 

  • Suffolk County Council

  • Thurrock Borough Council


What is the Market Shaping and Commissioning Network?

We are the Market Shaping and Commissioning Network (the network).

All local authorities that are responsible for provision of adult social care services are part of our network and together we are starting work to strengthen and develop the services that adult social care provides and buys (or commissions).

To do this we have started to draft some priorities for care market development within the eastern region. To read the priorities please click on the links below:

We would now like to pause in order to listen to your thoughts about what matters to you. We also want to hear your views on the thinking we have done so far about the future of the care market.  

This is important to ensure the priorities we end up with reflect what really matters to people. We want to ensure that the services and support available are the right ones to help people live the life they want to, to help people do the things that are important to them and enable people to be as independent as possible.
