Social care costs guide launched by CIPFA

The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) has issued a new guide which aims to help local authorities and care providers agree fee rates which are affordable, good value for money and 'support market sustainability'.

The guide, called Working with Care Providers to Understand Costs, was commissioned by the Department of Health (DH), the Local Government Association (LGA) and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) as part of a joint programme to support implementation of the Care Act in England, but might be of interest to practitioners in Wales as well.

To download the guide, go the the CIPFA website.
