CareCubed: The Necessity for Care Providers
CareCubed is a dynamic and sustainable tool with more than 10 years of experience in calculating the fair cost of care for different care provider settings.
The secure online tool is currently used in more than 30 care providers across the UK, and is available for both Adult Social Care and Children Social Care.
Built on a decade of experience with its predecessor, the CareFundingCalculator, the tool uses an evidence-based approach pulling on national benchmarked data to give a clear baseline for care costs.

Managing care spend is a pressing issue for thousands of care providers across the UK. Our dynamic tool gives your the necessary clarity on the cost of specialist care in order to help you address this issue, as it determines a sustainable fee rate for different care settings reflecting on local costs and rates.

The CareCubed Charter
Our fair care fair price charter developed in conjunction with councils and providers aims to act as a protocol for users and sets the expected behaviour and principles for both parties when using CareCubed, but also more broadly through the commissioning process. 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. It’s our aspiration for the principles outlined in the charter to become industry standard around information and data management in person-centred care practice.
We invite all local authorities and care providers to ‘sign up’ to the principles outlined in the charter. Click on the button below to view the charter and sign up.
Care Commissioners Find Providers Using CareCubed More Attractive
Using CareCubed shows that you are not a closed book, but a provider who wants to work with councils.
Some councils are building CareCubed as the pricing tool into contracts and would have a preference to work with providers using CareCubed. Having the tool will enable a conversation between both parties rather than simply letting the council use CareCubed to calculate fees.
CareCubed User Forums
We hold monthly online user forums to help ensure our users are getting the most out of the tool. This is an opportunity to bring our users together to share the tool’s latest developments and give us the chance to hear their thoughts and opinions to make sure the tool is meeting all their needs. The forums are free to attend and take place online via Microsoft Teams.
