Market Shaping Engagement Launch Page

Welcome to the Market Shaping Engagement  Launch Page

As part of our Market Shaping strategy, Essex County Council are pleased to announce the launch of our Market Shaping Engagement, which will run from 21st March 2022 to 21st June 2022

To deliver a Market Shaping Strategy, the local authority will need to collaborate closely with partners, including people with care and support needs, carers and families, to encourage and facilitate the whole market in its area for care, support and related services.

Through our Market Shaping Engagement we will consult with Providers and Stakeholders in the Adult Social Care Market to understand how they see the status of their current market(s) and how they would like to the see it develop in the future.

Our Market Shaping Engagement will use different events to consult with Providers and stakeholders, including:

  • Online Questionnaire
  • Provider Forums
  • One-to-one discussions
  • Webinars

Feedback from these engagement events will help inform our future Market Shaping Strategy on our Essex Market for Adult Social Care for the next 4 years.

Online Provider Questionnaire

To kick off our Market Shaping Engagement Plan, we would like to invite providers in the Adult Social Care Market to complete our initial Provider Questionnaire. The online questionnaire will remain open until 21st June 2022

Online Webinars

We will be holding two Online Webinars in the coming months which we would like to invite providers in the Adult Social Care Market to attend. These will be held firstly on the 5th May 2022, and secondly on the 8th June 2022. Please click the dates to view the event page and book your place. Tickets to both of these events are free.

Event Invites

Further invites to our Market Shaping Engagement events will start to be sent out in the coming weeks either directly or through our communication channels, including e-mail bulletins, newsletters and the Provider Hub.

We look forward to engaging with you to help shape the Essex Adult Social Care Market.
