Approval of Contract Variations Regarding the Review of Charges for the Care and Support at Home Framework

The Care and Support at Home Framework ‘Review of Charges’ clause provides a mechanism for service providers to request an increase to their charges as a result of unexpected and exceptional change in market factors or the circumstances of the service provider that has led to a significant change in costs.


Since implementation of the clause a number of providers have applied to the Council to increase contracted charges and have evidenced the contractual requirements in relation to the review of charges.
