To agree terms and enter into a 12 month agreement with Peabody South East to provide a grant of £37,478 for the further funding of the support provided at Derek Crosfield House. The grant will be paid from the Council’s allocation from the Flexible Homelessness Support Fund.
This decision follows on from the decision made by the Housing Portfolio Holder on 12th May 2017 to fund the scheme for an initial period of 12 months and if value for money considerations are satisfied to approve future funding whilst such value for money considerations are met and a budget is available.
Officers believe that value for money has been provided since the original decision and the support cost has been renegotiated to a lower sum for 2020/21. The scheme continues to run well and provides a much needed supported housing resource for the District with good outcomes for the tenants.
