Placement teams and local authority commissioners can use the Children’s Commissioning Support Resource (CCSR) to identify suitable placements for children in their care by entering details of the child’s requirements and running a search. In addition local authorities can issue placement referrals and conduct a tendering process, using CCSR to shortlist the providers who are relevant to the child’s needs.
The CCSR database holds details of care settings and vacancies from a range of service providers, including residential homes and foster carers. These are continually updated by care providers, ensuring that CCSR provides the most up-to-date information possible.
The database is available in English only.
