To waive section 8.2 of the Council’s contract standing orders for reasons of demonstrable best interest, to extend the 9 contracts for mental health supported accommodation and community support services by 24 months from 1 October 2020 to 30 September 2022.
The rationale for this extension is based on the importance of these services for meeting the needs of Lambeth residents with serious and enduring mental illness. The extension will enable the Alliance to (1) continue to provide essential services in order to meet the needs of vulnerable adults (2) complete financial modelling, needs analysis and contract reviews, (3) implement a framework agreement for MH supported accommodation and community support from April 2021, and (4) undertake ‘call offs’ via a framework for Mental Health community support and supported accommodation based on revised specifications which will improve outcomes, quality and value.
