Commissioning Strategy for Care and Support in Cumbria 2015 - 2020

Cumbria County Council is responsible for commissioning care, support and preventative activity that meets the needs of the residents of the county. The council must assess the needs of the population, determine which needs are eligible for services (according to nationally-set criteria), then design, procure, directly provide or otherwise arrange, monitor and evaluate those services ensuring appropriate outcomes are delivered.

Cabinet approval is sought for the Commissioning Strategy for Care and Support in Cumbria 2015 – 2020 which sets out how Cumbria County Council will commission services that will meet the needs of residents and fulfil its statutory adult social care responsibilities.
