star this property answer text <p>My rt hon friend the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government (Eric Pickles) made a Written Ministerial Statement on 18 December, <em>Official Report </em>Column 110WS, setting out the Government’s work on integration. As the Statement notes since 2010 the Department for Communities and Local Government has spent £45 million on supporting integration projects. It also makes clear that we are rising to the challenges, championing what unites our country across class, colour and creed and making clear that Britain is a stronger nation because of its faith communities. We are also taking initiatives and supporting communities in addressing anti-Muslim hatred. <br><br>We are clear that British values are Muslim values and there are incredible and powerful examples of Muslim social action and charitable contributions made by Britain's Muslim communities. Britain has a proud track record of multi-faith cooperation and we are confident that our communities work together in strengthening society. This cannot be achieved by Government alone and local communities and faith leaders are in a unique position in working with Government in ensuring that no British citizen feels marginalised.</p>

star this property answer text <p>It is important that there is a vibrant market of local care and support providers offering a choice of high quality services that are able to adapt over time to meet changing needs.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Care Act introduces new duties on local authorities to promote their local market, with a particular focus on quality, diversity and sustainability. The Government recognises that local authorities’ own commissioning is likely to be their most important tool for facilitating their markets. The Government has worked with the Local Government Association and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) to co-produce material to help local authorities promote their local markets and improve their own commissioning.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Ultimately, local authorities remain locally accountable for how their budgets are allocated, including spend on care and support. However, the Care Act is clear that prices agreed with care providers will have to reflect the new duties outlined above in relation to the promotion of sustainability of the overall market. The Government recently published statutory guidance setting out how local authorities should meet these new duties when commissioning, including the consideration of the actual costs of care and support when negotiating fee levels. A copy of the guidance is attached.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>More widely, as in any market, provider exits and entries are inevitable. Where continuity of care is at risk because a provider’s business has failed, local authorities must temporarily step in to ensure an individual’s needs continue to be met, including the needs of both those that are self- and state-funded. In order to help local authorities respond to potential situations where a provider is particularly large or geographically concentrated, and where an individual local authority may struggle to carry out this duty on its own, the Government has created a new market oversight function which will be carried out by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The CQC will act to oversee the finance of specified providers with a view to providing local authorities with early warning of financial failure and to ensure effective contingency plans can be put in place.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Government has also commissioned the ADASS to publish guidance for local authorities to assist them in developing contingency plans for managing provider failure which should be available by summer 2015.</p><p> </p>
