“We want commissioners and providers to be inspired by all the creative providers … They are examples of how people are being given the opportunity to enable a life not a service.”
So says Clenton Farquharson, chair of Think Local Act Personal (TLAP), launching its brand new resource Innovations in Community-centred Support today.
Caroline Speirs, head of TLAP, commented:
“Whilst I do not underestimate the scale of the challenge for councils to commission differently, I am thrilled that the case for seeking alternatives to traditional support arrangements is gaining legitimacy and momentum.
“Based on TLAP’s extensive knowledge of personalised care that focusses on people’s strengths and assets we are proud to have our part to play in this movement by contributing a practical digital resource for the sector”.
Thank you Caroline, Clenton and all at TLAP – we’re grateful to be included as an example of that movement.
