Newcastle City Council

Newcastle City Council choose Valuing Care to undertake their Domiciliary Fair Cost of Care Requirements and support the production of their Market Sustainability Plan. Newcastle City Council contacted Valuing Care in June 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

As well as completing the survey and reporting, Newcastle City Council have commissioned Valuing Care to support them in completing their Market Sustainability Plan. By using Valuing Care in this way, they have access to market insight, both in their region and through the company’s support for trailblazer authorities.
