Commissioning

Service needs of vulnerable adults, children and families are addressed by Nottingham City Council's Strategy and Commissioning Directorate.  Services are commissioned and procured for delivery by the Voluntary, Community and Private Sectors, and we engage with them to develop this market. We also lead Nottingham's approach to Early Intervention, aiming to provide integrated support to children, adults and families seeking to focus on the causes rather than the symptoms of their problems.

Commissioning of Adult, Children and Family Services
Commissioning is defined as the assessing the needs of people in a local area, designing services, and then securing /monitoring their delivery and effectiveness.
