Financial support information for Adult Social Care Providers during COVID-19
We have published details of the support we are giving to providers during the pandemic.
To support providers in their continued work, we are upholding our commitment of a 10% uplift to current contracted provider gross fees until 31 July 2020.
We are committed to supporting the local care market with the additional pressures being faced during the coronavirus pandemic including the availability and the wellbeing of teams and the availability of PPE and the subsequent increased costs, while still delivering the best quality care to our residents.
