Invitation to take part in a research project by University of Birmingham.
Project Title: Shifting Shapes: How can local care markets support quality and choice for all?
We are a research team from the School of Social Policy at the University of Birmingham and are seeking care providers in Nottinghamshire to take part in our project. The project is funded by the Department of Health. It aims to better understand the extent to which person-centred, high quality and cost-effective care services are available for people who need them.
What we want to find out
- Can people access care that provides quality, choice and control?
- What are Local Authorities doing to shape markets, individualise care funding and personalise care services?
- What are the costs and outcomes associated with different approaches to social care?
- How are cuts in services and the delay in care cap implementation affecting people?
What participation will involve
We would like to interview social care providers about the services they deliver, the extent to which they offer choice, control and person-centred care as well as their relationship with the Local Authority. We will include services for older people, people with disabilities, people using mental health services and carers. We would also like to speak to people who use services and carers. Everything you tell us will be treated as confidential and all data anonymised.
