Beacon C&C supports public sector commissioners who want to make a real difference to life chances for vulnerable people.  We provide support to develop strong and effective commissioning arrangements and innovative ways of securing services that will improve the wellbeing of vulnerable children, adults and families. We understand the challenges facing the sector and the need to get the best possible social return on investment whilst balancing the books.

We have longstanding expertise in public sector commissioning and have worked with many local areas to deliver transformational change to strategic commissioning capability.  We can help with releasing efficiencies through better commissioning and smarter approaches to procurement and contracting – targeting resources to where they are needed most and where they will have greatest impact.  Some examples of what we offer:

  • Developing an understanding of demand and how to tackle it effectively to reduce pressure on services
  • supporting the development of Commissioning Strategies with innovative solutions for both managing demand and securing efficient and effective services
  • ensuring performance management is embedded in commissioning processes at every level, including the development of outcomes frameworks and high level strategic frameworks to monitor direction across a local area
  • advising on the opportunities offered by social investment, and the potential of Social Impact Bonds.
