Welcome by Peter Macleod
Director of Social Work, Renfrewshire Council
Vice President, ADSW
The aim of commissioning activities should be to achieve the best possible outcomes for communities as a whole, and for individuals who require care and/or support
(SWIA Strategic Commissioning Guide – 2009)
Any commissioning that links investment to outcomes, which may involve facilitating and shaping the market for services. It moves the focus to results that may be achieved for individuals service by programmes and services (RIPFA, 2007)
A joint, outcomes based approach will allow us to better assess need and target services which meet this need and achieve improved outcomes for service users.
