The Reasons are Salford’s vision is to create a ‘carer friendly’ city where the diversity of our carers is recognised and key partners from health and social care work together to ensure that a carer’s wellbeing is maximised through appropriate and accessible support offering the right support at the right time.

We want all carers in Salford to be supported and empowered to continue on their caring journey in the way that they choose.

The Carers Service will provide high quality information, advice and support to carers to continue to care and have a life outside of caring.

The Carers Service will support statutory partners to deliver the statutory duties in respect of carers under the Care Act 2014 and Children and Families Act 2014 by ensuring that they are identified as early as possible, through engaging in development activities with organisations in Salford so that they can both identify carers they have in their workforce, or are providing a service to and develop carer friendly policies and practices.

The contract includes provider obligations associated with Social Value and added value. The provider will be expected to deliver Salford’s priorities and standards in relation to Social Value by signing up to the City Mayor’s Employment Charter and the 10% Better Campaign. To ensure the provider is meeting the requirements of the contract, the outcomes achieved, as a result of social or added value, will be monitored via regular performance monitoring.

 

Options considered and rejected were

Assessment of Risk

The reasons are

  • The Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS) is due to come into effect 1st October 2020. It is anticipated that the LPS will have an impact on the Salford Advocacy Hub and that they are likely to see an increase in demand for IMCA. The government is developing an LPS draft Code of Practice which will enable the system to estimate what the impact on advocacy might be. Prior to COVID-19The guidance was due to be released by June 2020, but this seems unlikely, therefore the target implementation date of 1st October 2020 will potentially be postponed. By extending the Salford Advocacy Hub contract by 12 months this will enable us to understand the LPS draft Code of Practice when it is released, review the impact the LPS will have on the advocacy service  ...  view the full decision text for item 5b
