Where contracts relate to the provision of care to individuals that is only provided as part of a care or support plan, and where someone must be assessed and eligible for support to receive, these are deemed as Personal Budget Services i.e only where eligible for ASC support (critical or substantial)
This provides opportunities for VCS to develop and expand their services to enable people to buy support using their personal budget
This is the largest expenditure in the VCS, and often has excellent outcomes.
Some VCS contracts have been excluded from this review, these will considered in separate reviews:

Welfare Law Advice
Meals on Wheels
Corporate Universal Services
Recently let or one off contracts

Choose My Support is an online marketplace for social care and associated services and products
Services and products are available for the citizens of Leicester and Leicestershire to browse, compare and purchase.
It aims to provide potential customers i.e. service users, carers, self-funders, brokers, with a wide choice of services and products
In order to ensure that service users are kept safe, all providers on the site must go through a simple approval process. [email_address]
Service providers are required to electronically ‘upload’ relevant documents and submit the required information in order for these to be verified by Leicester City Council administration staff. In the main, only the ‘uploading’ of a CQC registration document and submission of a completed ‘Self-Assessment Questionnaire’ is required at present for the approval process. Approval is made on the basis of the CQC registration and self-assessment questionnaire alone and such approval does not imply acceptance or endorsement of any other information contained within any extra documents.
