Financial implications: The contract is expected to have an annual value of £4,998,688. This funding is currently invested in annual grants to voluntary sector providers. These will be ended in order for the contract to be put in place. However, it is possible that investment from public health and Clinical Commissioning Groups may increase its value. We may also seek to increase the value of the contract over it’s lifetime, by adding additional related services to the contract specification.

Legal implications: TUPE may apply and legal advice will be sought as appropriate.

Equalities implications: An Equality Impact Assessment has identified a high impact on older people. Adverse impacts which include the ending of current funded services will be balanced by a positive impact of re-investing in universal services through a contract that will have a single point of contact and delivery network.
