Developing an Adult Social Care baseline of financial expenditure for a local council



  • Transformation Nous (TN) was commissioned by a Council corporate director to perform a comprehensive diagnostic of the Council’s activity and expenditure.
  • The study was commissioned in the context of an increase in demand for long-term care placements and packages. The diagnostic developed a baseline of the Council’s current expenditure, how this changed from previous years (in terms of activity and unit costs) and how expenditure compared to its statistical neighbours, regionally and nationally.
  • By benchmarking against other places, the diagnostic enabled the Council to identify areas of opportunity to improve the cost effectiveness of provision while improving outcomes and maximising independence for residents.
