Individual Service Funds (ISFs) and Contracting for Flexible Support

This Guide, aimed at council commissioners and providers, sets out how councils can contract flexibly with a service provider to meet a person's needs, and contract in a way that gives the person more control over their support.

TLAP developed the report with the Housing and Support Alliance. Dr Simon Duffy from the Centre for Welfare Reform was the primary author. It is part of a suite of resources commissioned by the Department of Health in partnership with the Local Government Association and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services to support local government in implementing the Care Act 2014.
