At today’s Annual Care at Home & Housing Support Conference, National Director Karen Hedge launched a new briefing paper for the home care sector focused on the commissioning and procurement landscape.
Entitled, ‘Putting Human Rights into the Commissioning Cycle: How to articulate your gut instinct‘, the paper outlines what is currently underway and what needs to change around five areas of commissioning:
- fair work
- competition or collaboration
- intelligence and data
The paper calls for the adoption of an approach based on human rights principles in order to ensure a dignified and sustainable approach to commissioning and care.
