Stronger Partnerships for Better Outcomes: A protocol for market relations

This is a set of principles and good behaviours that is intended to enhance effective ways of working between people and family carers, service providers and local authority commissioners. The Protocol recommends a co-production approach to local commissioning of care and support which fully complements Making it Real. It suggests that the three perspectives of people, carers and families, service providers and commissioners need to be brought together to unlock the potential for creative, person-centred approaches that meet people's needs.
