Middlesbrough Council

Middlesbrough Council contacted Valuing Care in April 2022 to discuss supporting them in completing their domiciliary fair cost of care (FCOC) exercise. They were aware of other councils in the area following similar approaches and wanted to gain consistency in a key market for them.

Valuing Care were assigned the following tasks:  

    • Understanding the current cost structure through surveying the market
    • Managing the data collection process 
    • Checking provider templates for accuracy and consistency
    • Identification of fair cost of care rates from the survey results
    • Creation of Valuing Care model benchmark rates to match the geographical area
    • Final reporting and data loading

All of the data collected used the LGA toolkit so that a common approach could be taken regionally on reporting and data recording.
