Care and continuity: contingency planning for provider failure – LGiU
This guide outlines some of the reasons care providers fail and how councils have responded to the need to help people find new care. It is also a practical guide to developing contingency and continuity plans to help councils prepare for any provider failure and work through disruption with providers, care users and their families. It was developed through an open process in collaboration with social care professionals, the financial services industry, emergency planners and provider and user representatives. The accompanying resource pack provides sample plans and links to additional useful guidance.
