Floating Support Service consultation - stakeholder consultation

New Search

Purpose Lancashire County Council is required to save 300 million by 2017/18, consequently Cabinet has decided to reduce the Supporting People budget by 4 million from 1st April 2015. This consultation is an opportunity for you to share your views with us about our future commissioning arrangements for floating support services.

Over coming months the county council will also work with local stakeholders, providers and citizens to determine how the floating support services should be targeted given the reduced capacity. This will include defining the following:
- Service outcomes
- Client groups
- Referral routes
- Types of support to be provided
- Eligibility criteria
- Prioritisation process
- Duration of support
- Geographical coverage
- Promotion of service to people who are hard to reach
