Unregulated care and support is provided to service users in their own homes and the wider community in order to meet their assessed needs, including the provision of day care.
This service is commissioned through the supporting independence contract which is used by both Devon County Council and the Devon Partnership Trust. The contract is split into the 8 zones and is split into 2 lots, namely:
- Lot 1 – group-based care
- Lot 2 – individual care
There are annual entry points for providers to apply to join the supporting independence contract framework.
