Domiciliary Care Franchise / Co-operative Model Feasibility Study 2022 - 2023

Are you concerned about the current situation in domiciliary care affecting people across Wales? Do you have experience of domiciliary care in Wales as a provider or service user, from the third sector, private sector, health boards or a Local Authority? We want to hear your views. 

Are you interested in contributing to the development of new ideas for how to support services, prevent closures and provide positive benefits for services users and the workforce? ADSS Cymru is undertaking a feasibility study to explore how Local Authorities might be able to learn from third sector and private sector providers, and health borads to create a franchise / co-operative model for domiciliary care in Wales. Here's how you can get involved.

What will the feasibility study do?
The feasibility study will report on whether a franchise model could be used to support domiciliary care services to be more sustainable and better supported across Wales. We are seeking to co-produce the feasibility study with a broad range of domiciliary care-experienced people and organisations from across from the third sector, private sector, health boards and Local Authorities in Wales. We want to hear from: care providers; service users and unpaid carers; social care leaders, managers and frontline workforce. 

We will undertake detailed research into existing models of domiciliary care in Wales to produce a final report that outlines the most appropriate model for implementation. It will assess the practicalities of the proposed concept and the likelihood of its successful implementation and future sustainability. The research and engagement part of this project runs from October 2022, and we aim to publish the final feasibility study report in August 2023. There will be opportunities to take part in online and in-person sharing sessions throughout this period, as well as fill in surveys to share ideas and experiences from service providers, service users and their carers. 

At the end of the engagement period, we will share the final feasibility study report with you and the wider public and outline key points and next possible steps. We need your help to spread the word and ensure the final study lays out how leaders can make a positive impact on the future domiciliary care in Wales.
