Consortia commissioning of looked after children's services

In 2015, the Department for Education asked IPC to review consortia commissioning arrangements for residential child care and foster care provided by independent agencies.  We produced a research report that mapped consortia arrangements and offered recommendations and considerations for the sector.

Fiona Richardson, Assistant Director at IPC, facilitated a workshop about commissioning consortia at the 2016 children's commissioning and contracting conference. The presentation is available to download (ws 3.11) from the NCCTC conference website.  Workshop attendees were very keen for us to circulate updated information about consortia, including consortia lead contact details.
