Learning disability day services are delivered through contracts with 9 independent organisations.
These services, along with the Council’s in-house day services, meet customers social care needs, as defined under the Care Act 2014, by promoting independent living and wellbeing by providing a range of functions:
Taking up the extension will allow the County Council and its health partners to explore future delivery models and associated cost structures which, in line with the Lifelong Disability and Autism Market Position Statement objectives, will lead to new models of support which focus on progression, increased independence and community based relationships resulting in a reduction of building base day services.
The contracts with the independent providers were let on a 5 year term, commencing 1st April 2015, with the option for a 2 year extension (Decision Ref: HA11 12/13). The Executive Director Adults and Health is asked to extend the contracts with the independent providers for a further two years to 31 March 2022.
The Executive Director of Adults and Health has approved a two year extension period of the Day Services Contracts, up to 31st March 2022.
