Guidance on the CareCubed Charter

Before you start

To sign the CareCubed Charter you will need someone senior in your organisation (relevant Head of Service (signing up on behalf of a team), Assistant Director or Director) to approve your application. 

To avoid delays, we suggest you: 

  • identify this person now 
  • have the conversation with them about signing the Charter and what it means for your organisation

What are the commitments to the Charter? 

To sign up to the Charter, we ask your organisation to follow the expected behaviours outlined in the Charter ambition. Please share the Charter with all relevant colleagues.  

It is hoped that by actively applying the principles within the charter, commissioners and providers are more likely to build trust and mutual respect, achieve a better balance of risk and streamline the negotiation process. The overarching aim is to ensure positive outcomes are achieved for people who rely on care and support services, through the effective use of resources and with providers and commissioners working as partners.

What’s in it for you?

The CareCubed Charter has been created by a mix of commissioning and authorities and care providers to set the principles and guidelines for an open, transparent, fair and collaborative commissioning process. Signing up to this Charter demonstrates your organisation’s desire to work with providers to fix some of the current issues that exist in commissioning processes and means you will become part of an innovative group of organisations working together for the good of the sector. 

All organisations that sign up to the CareCubed Charter are published online so that others are aware of likeminded organisations and to identify opportunities to collaborate.

We will also share an electronic CareCubed Charter logo that can be used in documents, email footers etc.
