Joint Commissioning in Action Guide

Written by Preparing for AdulthoodDate 25 Mar 2015

This guide by Preparing for Adulthood has been developed to help local authorities, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and their partners to deliver on the joint commissioning duties in the Children and Families Act 2014.

This is the second publication by the Preparing for Adulthood programme to help local authorities, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and their partners to deliver on the joint commissioning duties contained in the Children and Families Act 2014 and, with particular reference to the interface between children's and adult services, the Care Act 2014. This document gives practical examples of how different authorities have made progress in jointly commissioning services and suggests ideas and ways in which authorities and their partners can make progress with joint commissioning in practical, realistic and often small-step ways. The intended audience is those responsible for strategic planning and commissioning in adults and children's services in health, education, social care, public health and beyond.
