Issue details

Delivering sleep-in services consultation outcome

On 3 December, Cabinet made a decision in response to a successful legal challenge by Mencap in relation to payments for sleep-in services for adults with learning disabilities. Following this decision, the county council was asked by different providers if it would formally consult with all affected providers in relation to the proposed changes to sleep-in fees. Whilst ordinarily this is not a decision which the county council would consult on, Cabinet welcomed the opportunity to hear from providers on what this change would mean for people affected and undertook a formal consultation.


This report summarises the outcome of consultation and the county council's revised proposals in response to key issues raised. 


This is deemed to be a Key Decision and the provisions of Standing Order C19 have been complied with.
