The Council is working in partnership with District & Borough Councils, registered housing providers and registered care providers to develop and deliver extra care housing across West Sussex.
Extra Care provides an alternative option for people who require care but want to retain their independence through having their own front door.
The Council has invested capital grant funding into the builds of Monaveen and Lingfield Lodge (Report Ref FN16 2019-20). A return of investment has been agreed through the reduction in the cost of care the council may provide to a person through a council managed budget or placement.
Following a procurement process (Report ref: AH03 2020-21) between July and October 2020, the Council is now in a position to award contracts for the delivery of Extra Care Services at Monaveen and Lingfield Lodge.
