Commissioning care and support

Last updated - 6 November 2017

For our commissioners
Genesis provides services across London, Hertfordshire, Essex and East Anglia to more than 5000 people with diverse care and support needs every year. Each service we offer is designed to address the specific requirements of the local community. We continually work with our commissioners to adapt, innovate and respond to emerging health and social care pressures and drive integration of the health and housing agenda.
Delivering quality, caring services

A developing housing association

We are committed to building homes which meet the needs of society's most vulnerable. Our current pipeline of developments include new Extra Care schemes, home ownership products for people with disabilities and mixed-tenure developments focused on creating sustainable communities.

Over the years, we have worked with commissioners to develop pilots, build lasting partnerships and find flexible ways to deliver quality, despite restrictions faced by local government. We are keen to speak with commissioners from local authorities, adult social care, capital development, public health and other potential partners.

Tailoring services to meet local needs

An example of innovation

Originally a pilot set up with Suffolk Public Health in 2008, Supported Treatment Accommodation and Recovery Suffolk (STARS) is a programme for people with a history of substance misuse and/or offending. We provide housing, support and work in partnership with offenders' services, police, prisons and local substance misuse agencies to provide a joined-up service that genuinely meets our customers' needs.

 

STARS commissions an independent Social Return on Investment Report, demonstrating our service returned £4 in social value for every £1 the commissioning authority spent on the service.
