The proposed decision was discussed at the Adult Social Care Cabinet Committee on 27 September 2018.

Financial implications: The 2017/18 estimated cost for the Supported Living service is £38m. Accurate figures for this service are problematic to obtain through current reporting methods where Supported Living and the Supporting Independence Service are linked.

Legal implications: The main legislative framework for the Supported Living Service is the Care Act 2014, and the principles of Mental Capacity Act 2005. These are statutory duties, and the Supported Living service will be compliant with both legislations.

Equalities implications: The intention is for the Supported Living Service to be included in the Care and Support in the Home contract after the extension period. An existing EqIA is in place and the Care and Support in the Home EqIA will be updated as the work to include in the new contract is undertaken.
