Tricuro provides social care to adults with a range of needs across the county of Dorset.
Like all councils in the UK, Bournemouth Borough Council, Borough of Poole and Dorset County Council are faced with huge financial and demographic challenges, on top of their existing geographical challenges.
By launching Tricuro, all three councils can retain the quality and scope of services by sharing their resources, as well as giving staff more power to work flexibly and efficiently. They can also develop and expand these existing services, enabling us to deliver them to more people.
Cllr Blair Crawford, Bournemouth’s Cabinet member for Adult Social Care:
“In these days of financial restraints and with a growing older population we have to look at ways we can continue to deliver our services and how we can develop them in the future. Tricuro will give us the freedom to be as adaptable and flexible as those who currently operate in the private sector whilst at the same time ensuring we are able to fulfil our commitment to providing care to those who need it.”
Cllr Karen Rampton, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Adult Social Care, Borough of Poole:
“The creation of Tricuro offers us an exciting opportunity to work in partnership to help improve the way social care services are delivered. I look forward to working alongside colleagues to move this forward following the approval by Council.”
Cllr Jill Haynes, Dorset County Council’s Cabinet member for adult social care:
“We have been looking for ways to work more closely with our colleagues in Bournemouth and Poole, and Tricuro represents a fantastic opportunity for all three authorities to transform the way they deliver social care to people across the county. By combining our high quality services and excellent staff, we can create a sustainable organisation that provides better value for money and will benefit all service users and carers across Dorset by offering greater choice and control.”
