Care sector support

To support providers in their continued work, we are committed to providing 10% uplift to current contracted provider gross fees until 31 July 2020. 

This additional funding is to support the local care market with the pressures being faced during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This includes the availability and wellbeing of staffing teams, additional pressures being managed in terms of risk, availability of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and subsequent increased costs, while still delivering the best quality care to our residents.

The table below sets out the financial support already given to care providers up to the end of May 2020 and this website page will be regularly updated as further payments are made.
