Effective strategic commissioning of children’s residential care homes

Monday 30 September 2013

OPM was commissioned by the LGA to conduct research into the more effective strategic commissioning of children’s residential care homes.  The research focused on three aspects of commissioning: needs analysis; matching needs and supply; and quality assurance and monitoring. We reviewed published literature, undertook extensive interviewing, conducted an online survey of children and young people in care and care leavers and facilitated action learning groups with the ten participating local authorities.
