Block purchase

Plain English definition
Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) Jargon Buster
Think Local Act Personal

When an organisation such as your local council pays a provider for a service for a group of people with a particular need. Because block purchases guarantee an amount of work for a provider, services usually cost the council less. However, individual people who use these services may not have much choice about who provides their care or what they receive.
