We have produced a report on the SPECTRUM CIL and Hampshire County Council Commissioning Home Care Competition. The report explains how the competition worked and outlines the learning from the process, including some ‘top tips’ for ULOs on how to engage with commissioning.
The report can be downloaded here: Home Care Competition Results and Learning
The competition has also been written up as a case study on user-led commissioning in the recent ‘Confident Commissioning’ guide produced by the South East Network of Disabled People’s Organisations (SENDPO). This can be downloaded here: Confident Commissioning
Finally, an article about the competition by Peter Beresford has been published in The Guardian newspaper, and can be seen here: http://www.theguardian.com/social-care-network/2014/feb/19/user-led-innovative-approaches-to-home-care?CMP=twt_gu
