Consider move to a direct payments model for social care

Look at moving to a direct payments, rather than direct service provision, model for social care.  This is likely to be the most effective means of providing social care (see http://www.scie.org.uk/publications/guides/guide10/questions/question07.asp).  It will also enable people whose needs are not well met by existing standardised provision to pay for bespoke packages.

Why the contribution is important

Improves service, may reduce costs overall.
