Contract extensions and variations for care and support services within Extra Care Housing

The proposal was to extend both current contracts for the provision of care and support within extra care schemes for two years from 1st April 2015 to 31st March 2017.

Outcome-based models for extra care will be investigated in order to find one (or more) that provide the best value for both tenants and the council, while promoting community involvement both within and without the schemes. Various models are available and best practise in extra care is developing rapidly. A two year extension will allow time for a thorough investigation of these options and a procurement exercise.
