Award of Contract Care and Support at Home Services

Care and support at home services (also known as domiciliary care or home care) are purchased by the county council on behalf of people who have been assessed as having eligible social care needs. These services support people to maintain their independence through the delivery of personal care and support, provided within a person’s own home.


A decision was taken in January 2024 (AS03(23/24)) to extend the current contract arrangements and to commence the procurement of care and support at home services with new contracting arrangements planned to commence on 29th September 2024.


Following the commencement and completion of a procurement process, as approved by the Cabinet Member for Adults Services, the Director of Adults and Health will be asked to agree contract awards.
