The Cabinet Member authorised the award of contract to Longhurst Group for the delivery of care and support in two extra care schemes, Bishopsfield in Walton and St Edmunds Court in Hampton. This contract will be for a period of 3 years, with an optional one year extension.
The contract will start from 1 March 2021 to 29 February 2024 with an optional extension of 12 months. The annual contract value for the fixed elements of the service (i.e. waking nights and floating support/activities) will be £205,787. The contract value for the assessed care hours is subject to fluctuation as it is dependent upon the care needs of people living in the schemes – in October 2020, the annualised amount for this aspect of the contract was £520,916.
