Funding and contracts

Funding and contracts

  • Total adult social care net budget is £38.5m

  • NHS Swindon budget for health is £317m of which £15m is funding community health services in SEQOL, £5m for children’s community health services, £15m mental health

  • £2.4m is spend by SBC and NHS Swindon in the voluntary sector but contracts have developed over time, are fragmented, with lack of outcome based specifications

  • £4m spend by SBC on Supported Housing with contracts which are not always linked to adult social care and mental health contracts

Financial challenge

Financial challenge

  • The funding gap for Swindon Borough Council for 2013/14 is approximately £20m. In addition to proposed savings announced in December 2012, there are further challenges and the budget is not yet balanced. In January 2013the government removed £1.7m from the early Intervention Grant and allocated this to the dedicated Schools Grant to fund child care for vulnerable 2 year olds. Swindon CCG received a very challenging allocation to deliver good health outcomes for people in Swindon

  • The future position is very different and likely to be more challenging than what we have faced before

  • There is a need to get the most value from every £ we spend and challenge everything we do

    • Our key partners represent a significant part of our net budget so we need to work closely with them to align and maximise value from our collective resources

We can’t do everything and what we do must count !

How do we manage the increasing demand for services

How do we manage the increasing demand for services?

  • Consultation with voluntary sector on priorities and shape of services

  • Demand inquiry – how can we collectively manage the demand for adult social care



  • Swindon Borough Council and NHS Swindon are planning to consult on changes to the way voluntary sector contracts are commissioned

  • Swindon CCG has agreed to receive the results of the consultation at the Clinical Commissioning Group Board in due course

  • We are planning a 12 week consultation starting 1stFebruary 2013



  • A series of focus groups and meetings to be held with representative of voluntary agencies providing mental health services, adult support and children’s services

  • Invitation to all agencies to submit their views in writing

  • A report collating the findings of the consultation to go to the Joint Commissioning Board, Clinical Commissioning Group Board and Elected Members with final recommendations

Purpose of the consultation

Purpose of the consultation

  • To gain the views of voluntary and community organisations and service users about the proposals to achieve:

  • Maximise independence;

  • Avoid long term care and hospital/specialist services admissions;

  • Encourage self-help, self care and behaviour change;

  • Grow social networks to support service users and carers;

  • Make better use of resources;

  • Safeguard against abuse and discrimination;

  • Improve access to local services through advice and information

  • Address inequality and the social exclusion of key groups

Building on previous consultation and themes from demand work

Building on previous consultation and themes from demand work

  • Advice and information about services needs co-ordination and a complete reshape

  • Managing expectations with communities and individuals with a starting point of ‘what people can do for themselves’, ‘how to keep/build skills to remain independent and what do they need help with

  • Learning disability/mental health services need to be community focused rather than placing people in residential/specialist care

  • There is much the voluntary and community sector can offer to develop solutions that commissioners are not using

Building on previous consultation

Building on previous consultation

  • Provide increased support for carers;

  • Align Community contracts more closely to the Adult Demand Inquiry Programme aims;

  • Establish an Advice and Information Hub, offering services and opportunities to enable people to live more independently;

  • Continue to fund services that provide preventative and befriending support ;

  • Reshape employment projects to encourage throughput, value for money and greater opportunity of employment experience;
