Leeds City Council Adults and Health Market Position Statement

This Market Position Statement (MPS) (launching officially in the new financial year) provides information about the care and support market in Leeds for both existing and potential providers.

This MPS sets out the strategic drivers, market overview and our future commissioning intentions. We also want to build a varied and responsive local care and support market.
