Statutory, voluntary, private, informal, social provisions

Can anyone give me an example for these five provisions and outline what they are? Because there is nothing on the Internet to explain these to me.
I would be really grateful as it would give me a better understanding of my assignment
Not sure if this helps, but I found it online.


Care provision is either delivered as formal care (via care organisations and self-employed practitioners) or as informal care (via family members and friends).

Most care provision in Britain is delivered through the informal care sector.

The statutory care sector provides most formal care services.

Statutory health care is delivered by the National Health Service (NHS) and social care, education and early years services mainly through local authorities (councils).

Health care provided via GP (family doctor) surgeries is known as primary health care.

Non-specialist care, support and companionship is typically provided by informal carers.

Most childcare, social support and assistance for older and disabled people is provided through this route. This is partly due to lack of formal, statutory care provision in these areas.

Voluntary sector care provision generally focuses on social care provision and includes groups such as 'Busy Bees', attended by Phyllis and Ada.

Private sector care provision is based around self-employed practitioners and small businesses providing specialist forms of care for which people are willing to pay a fee or charge. Childcare providers, optical services and slimming advisers (see Hasina in programme 4) often operate as private sector services.

Each of the people featured seek care services in response to their self-perceived or formally assessed health, support or developmental needs.

Oh thank you so much, yeah that has helped me. It's just been really difficult to find the definitions, even in the library.
I really appreciate that :smile:

Statutory is where the government pays for the care such as the National Health Service (NHS), school nursing and social services. Staff training is known as being a necessary part of providing quality care. Providers have to ensure that staff is aware of their roles and responsibilities. Their training should include: evacuation procedures, safeguarding, child protection and the policies and procedures about reporting cases of suspected abuse or neglect and health and safety issues. The practitioner must also ensure that other staff have the needed qualifications to work with children and that staff; child ratios are adhered to. At least one member of staff must have been certified for First Aid training.
