The plan will assess the impact current fee rates are having on the market and the potential future risks (particularly in the context of adult social care reform). This assessment will enable local authorities to inform the development of mitigating actions, including how much they will need to increase fee rates over the three-year Spending Review period.
The completion and publication of a Market Sustainability Plan was a condition of the Fair Cost of Care and Market Sustainability Fund, and remains a condition of any future funding, including the new Market Sustainability and Improvement Funding Grant.
The market sustainability plan needs to take into account the results from the cost of care exercises, considers the impact of future market changes over the next three years, particularly in the context of adult social care reform and sets out an outline action plan for addressing the issues identified and the priorities for market sustainability investment.
If the Council agrees an annual inflationary uplift prior to publishing the MSP, the document will be updated to reflect this.
