Guidance for commissioned services during COVID-19 response
Created: 22/06/2020, Updated: 23/06/2020
COSLA has published guidance for commissioned services that sets out the advice and best practice solutions for local authority commissioners during the COVID-19 crisis.
The guidance details issues that have been raised by providers and some of the actions commissioners and providers should consider locally to resolve them. The aim of this guidance is to support collaborative working to protect the resilience of the social care sector and ensure it remains operationally and financially viable. It aims to provide clarity and promote the good practice that is already in place in different areas and outline clear objectives and standards to work towards.
