Crisis Payment to Adult Social Care Suppliers

On 20 March 2020, adult social care suppliers were reassured that, should they experience financial crisis, the council would look to support them through providing a cash advance.

The Government's Cabinet Office has made a number of provisions effective immediately until 30 June 2020.


This decision is urgent and cannot await the next meeting of Cabinet. The reason for this is that all formal meetings of the council, including Cabinet, have been cancelled for the foreseeable future and this decision has been deemed to be business critical by Corporate Management Team. This decision is therefore being taken on behalf of Cabinet by the Leader of the Council and the Cabinet Member for Adult Services in accordance with the provisions of Standing Order C28(1).
