Market Position Statement

Devon County Council is one of very few local authorities to have published a Market Position Statement, which we see as an increasingly important part of our relationship with the social care market.

The Market Position Statement describes our commissioning activity, whether externally purchased or provided in-house, signalling opportunities for market development and signposting forthcoming changes.

Supporting the main document is the Demand Analysis which provides greater detail about demographic trends and commissioning activity.

Having published an Interim Market Position Statement in September 2010, we published our full Market Position Statement in Summer 2011, accompanied by a Demand Analysis. We published an updated Demand Analysis in February 2012 and have now published an updated Market Posotion Statement in September 2012.

Please note that these documents are available online only, we do not produce paper copies.
