Shared Lives scheme

In December 2013, approval was given to the waiver of section 8.0 (Purchasing Rules) of the Contract Standing Orders in order to extend the Shared Lives scheme with Lambeth Mencap for a further period of 12 months for the period 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2014.
During the extension period it was proposed to:
a) Expand the Shared Lives Scheme to all client groups by participating in the Cabinet Office Trailblazer Scheme, for the use of Social Impact Bond.
b) Enter into direct negotiation with Social Finance to develop a social investment mechanism to expand the Shared Lives scheme through a competitive selection process.

Lambeth appointed Social Finance to support the development of this contract model in Lambeth and to identify a viable Shared Lives provider for the delivery of Shared Lives care in Lambeth, to be supported with social investment. In selecting the Shared Lives provider, Social Finance has undertaken to run a fair and transparent selection process
