Commissioning best practice - case studies

Year of Publication: 

Through several policies and programmes, including the Department of Communities and Local Government's Our Place and Delivering Differently, The Public Service Transformation Network and the Commissioning Academy, the government is supporting local commissioners to design and implement commissioning models. Drawing on these programmes, together with other examples of excellent and innovative commissioning, the Public Service Transformation Network has gathered together emerging exemplars of commissioning practice with the aim of inspiring and assisting other commissioners in their public service transformation.

The case studies reflect different commissioning scopes, from local authority through to neighbourhood level, across a breadth of services ranging from public health, mental health, adult social care and early intervention with families who have complex needs, through to preventing re-offending, domestic violence and transferring assets (parks and libraries) into community ownership.
