Market Engagement project and the future of the Independent Provider Forum

NCC aims to have an open, honest and mutually beneficial dialogue with providers of all the services the council commissions.  Being able to connect with providers is critical in achieving the changes required to realise the full ambition of the Promoting Independence programme and delivering the best possible outcomes for people in Norfolk.

To support this shift and ensure continued strong market engagement NCC representatives from key departments like Commissioning, Procurement and QA & Market Development are meeting with strategic providers on a regular basis through the individual block contract provider meetings, and locality framework sessions.

Norfolk County Council Wants Your Views on Market Engagement

Norfolk County Council is launching a survey for organisations involved in social care and support as part of our work on market engagement. We want to hear your experiences, ideas and feedback on a number of the ways we communicate, engage with and support you in order to improve the structures we have. Your responses will help shape this important piece of work.

The survey should take 6-10 minutes to complete. You can start the survey by clicking on the following link: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/NorfolkMarketSurvey/

Your responses will be completely anonymous and we cannot trace back any comments to you. We are not collecting any personally identifiable information unless you include any personal information in any of the comment boxes. We will combine your responses with those of many others, and they will be summarized in a report to further protect your anonymity. We will only use the data we receive to help us shape the market engagement plan and will not share it with anyone else.

The survey will remain open until 12 January.

We hope you will take this opportunity to contribute your views and help us shape the future of market engagement in Norfolk.
