Older people who self fund their social care: A guide for health and wellbeing boards and commissioners

Monday 16 September 2013

Working with Sitra, OPM has produced a free guide to help local authorities consider the needs of self-funders and plan for the new social care system.

Designed to be used by health and wellbeing boards and commissioners, with engagement from self-funders, the guide aims to raise awareness, improve strategic planning and system design, and provide commissioning advice. The guide also includes a commissioning scorecard, which offers an at-a-glance tool for mapping current provision for self-funders and for determining future priorities.

Both an executive summary and full version of the report are available for free download.
