Adults and Older People's Services

Central to our work with senior managers, practitioners, commissioners and those involved in the direct care and support to adults and older people is a focus on the delivery of outcomes that improve the health and well-being of individuals. With over 30 years experience across the UK in this area, IPC offers you credible and sector-respected independent advice and expertise to improve the design, commissioning, practice quality and performance management of services and support.

Commissioning and market shaping

IPC has led thinking on market shaping, and worked extensively with local authorities, providers and national governments on the commissioning task. We offer expertise in market analysis and developing market position statements, as well as giving support to commissioners wanting to work more closely with their providers - and vice versa.

We've created a number of resources to help you analyse and assess your particular care market, including the Market Shaping Toolkit and the Self Funders Toolkit. We also host a database of all published market position statements in England.
