Market Position Statement

In successive policy documents, the Government has been clear about the role of Local Authorities to support and ensure sufficiency of supply in the social care market.

The Market Position Statement (MPS) is a key tool with which to begin the dialogue with providers towards the development of a thriving market place and is a statutory requirement from April 2014.

Its purpose is to help providers and commissioners to work together to ensure that there are the right kind of services in place, in the right areas, at the right prices and quality, to meet the current and predicted need for services.
