GCPA Board Members are currently in discussion with Gloucestershire County Council (GCC) about the weightings being used to identify appropriate global uplifts.

Your information is greatly valued to assist us with this conversation.


Currently GCC use the following weightings when calculating the annual global uplift:

Bed-Based providers:

65% Staffing (EARN03 Index)

25% Consumer Price (CPI Index)

10% Buildings Maintenance (BMI Index)


Community-Based providers:

75% Staffing (EARN03 Index)

25% Consumer Price (CPI Index)


We would be grateful if you could spare a few moments to check your latest annual account and complete the form below, these should take no more than a few moments of your time.

This will remain open until 9am Monday 24th June 2024.

On behalf of the GCPA Board, thank you for your time and continued input.
