Personalisation of social care and health - a co-operative solution
Co-operatives UK has worked together with Manchester Metropolitan University to explore and assess the opportunities for co-operatives and mutuals as service providers under personal budgets in social care and health.
This new report from Jenny Fisher, Mary Rayner and Sue Baines looks at the implications for future policy and extension of the provider market within the context of personalisation.
The research was undertaken by Manchester Metropolitan University as a placement with Co-operatives UK and Cobbetts, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council under a Business Engagement Opportunities project.
This research is based on in-depth interviews and field visits with two case studies, documentary research and a number of other relevant stakeholders. The interviews with Sunshine Care, Caring Support, and stakeholders took place between April and July 2010.
