Market Position Statement (MPS) for Adult Social Care services in Croydon.

The MPS is being refreshed and updated during 2018 and will be published on a phased basis with specific sections for different needs groups.

The first element of the new MPS to be published covers Learning Disabilities. Other sections (eg, Mental Health, Physical Disabilities, Older People) will be published over the coming months.

The MPS will be kept under review and will be updated on an on-going basis.


What is a Market Position Statement:

A market position statement (MPS) is a document which summarises supply and demand in the local authority area and gives an indication of business opportunities within the care market in that area.

Croydon’s MPS gives a high level picture of the:

  • Key principles and outcomes for Adult Social Care services
  • Future needs of service users and changes in demand
  • Views of service users and carers in terms of the support they wish to receive
  • Current pattern of service provision and use
  • Anticipated future plans and service needs

The MPS is linked to and informed by a range of other documents such as Commissioning Strategies and the Joint Strategic Needs Analysis (JSNA) which include more detailed information and statistics.

Links to these strategies and other relevant documents are provided within the MPS.
