Policy and planning

The Better Care Fund policy statement 2020/21

This document confirms how local authorities and clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) should proceed with finalising plans and pooling agreements for funding under the Better Care Fund (BCF) in 2020-21, and sets out the national conditions for the fund.

BCF plans are jointly developed by health and social care partners in every area in England and support integrated, person-centred care in communities.

The minimum contributions for the BCF from CCGs for 2020/21 and improved Better Care Fund grant allocations were published in February. These are prepopulated in the income and expenditure template published recently to support local planning for the use of the BCF.
