Care England has published an Independent Providers Support Briefing to boost the sector’s financial resilience.
Resources included in the briefing cover areas such as:
- Recruitment and retention support
- Energy cost reduction measures
- VAT recovery advice
- Procurement support
- Fee negotiation resources
- Personal budgets resources.
Care England Chief Executive Professor Martin Green says the measures could bring about immediate relief to a struggling sector equal to that of a 5-10 per cent uplift in care provider fees.
