Sector Leadership Group

. . . . you are warmly invited to join

You may be aware that a Sector Leadership Group is being developed which will bring together senior representatives of the adult social care provider sector in the areas covered by Dorset Council and Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council. The group will meet periodically with senior managers from the two councils, Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Dorset Integrated Care System (ICS) and it will discuss the big, strategic issues which affect the sector, for example:

•Workforce

•How adult social care and health services can work together more effectively

•What type of adult social care services people will want in the future.

The aim of the group is to ensure that adult social care providers are represented and can contribute when the big strategic decisions are taken. This new group is being supported by both Dorset Care Homes Association and Dorset Home Care Provider Association.

Its remit will be to discuss issues which affect all parts of the adult social care provider sector locally, and therefore is best suited to those within a senior role. This is really exciting and important opportunity for the sector to have a bigger say and we would strongly encourage all providers to think about becoming involved.
