Liverpool City Council: Market Position Statement 2020-25

Capacity: The Public Services Lab will be working with Liverpool City Council over the coming months to support the development of a refreshed Market Position Statement (MPS) for Adult Social Care in Liverpool.


Adult Social Care in Liverpool is being transformed to provide better outcomes for people using care services, improving the quality of services available and provide people with more choice around the care they receive and how they receive it.

We are working with Liverpool City Council (LCC) to develop a refreshed Market Position Statement; a document designed to inform existing and potential providers to Liverpool of commissioning needs and intentions within Adult Social Care over the coming years. This exercise includes comprehensive market engagement with providers, service users and the general population to look at what is required to deliver the vision for Adult Social Care in Liverpool, and to enable co-production of a valuable, informative resource.

The key themes driving the transformation of Adult Social Care in Liverpool are:

Promotion of independence and wellbeing

Promoting positive wellbeing, empowering people to live happier, more fulfilled lives and remain in their own home or within the community for longer and tackling health inequalities.

Prevention and early intervention

Working with community and health partners to identify adults who may be vulnerable or at risk, intervening earlier to prolong good health, preventing deterioration where possible and avoiding further need for services.


Enabling adults in receipt of care services in Liverpool to have more choice about what type of care they receive, and how and where it happens.

Quality of care

Ensuring people have confidence in the services available to them through commissioning high quality providers who provide effective, person-centred care.

The following survey will capture the requirements of the new Market Position Statement for new and existing providers, informing the structure and content of the final piece of work, steering objectives and advising the way LCC works with providers in the future, creating opportunities for new services and innovation within adult social care.

The survey will take a maximum of 5-10 minutes to complete, and all answers will be completely anonymous (unless you decide to provide your website address as a new, potential provider of services in Liverpool, or email address for updates on MPS publications). If you are a potential new provider, please access the survey here. If you are an existing provider, please access the survey here.
