“Tackling the funding deficit

The funding shortfall currently projected by the Authority is £16m in 2016/17 and totals almost

£38m across the remaining four-years of this funding settlement.  Medium Term Financial Plan papers can be found using the following link:

We therefore have to review the services we provide and continually challenge the ways in

which they are delivered. The Authority is currently investigating the following options for

service delivery models:

Learning Disabilities

The Authority and Clinical Commissioning Group believe that a social enterprise partnership

would be the best way to ensure that:

  • Customers and carers are at the heart of decision making
  • Services are value based
  • Profit should not be made from the delivery of services
  • Change for customers and carers should be minimised
  • Services should be accountable to the people who use them and their carers and relatives

In addition, this should ensure sustainability and the continuation of the things that customers and carers have told us that the Learning Disabilities Provider Service is already doing well.”
