Our commissioning approach for adults, children and families in Gateshead

Purpose and vision

Purpose of this document

The purpose of this document is to set out Gateshead Council's approach to commissioning for vulnerable adults, children and families, including priorities, commissioning practice, process and resources. The document will complement and support corporate Council and wider system strategies directed at key user groups and issues. Where activity is identified, this is set out in more detail in relevant service plans and commissioning priorities documents.

Gateshead's commissioning vision

This will be achieved through a commissioning approach which is informed, engaged, collaborative, innovative and people focused. It will manage resources and risks effectively, and align to the commissioning principles and service priorities set out in the Integrated Adults and Social Care Strategy 2023-28, Early Help Strategy 2023-2026 (PDF) [1MB] (opens new window)  and Gateshead SEND Strategy 2023-2026 (opens new window).
