Councillor Denise Scott-McDonald
Decision Outcome

Agreed to consult with residents and staff on a new model of Sheltered Housing delivery that will ensure that residents are supported to maintain their independence through a combination of services delivered for a transparent service charge. The model will take into account how to enable residents to access the community and stay safe through other avenues such as the Live Well/ Community hub offer.    

Agreed to consult on a restructure of the Sheltered Housing Teams in both Housing and Safer Communities (HSC) and Health and Adult Services (HAS).   The intention to reduce the size of the team based on the recommendations of an independent review which indicated that the same outcomes could be delivered and report into the HSC directorate.  Any consultation and changes to the service would be in line with the Council’s Policies and Procedures.

Agreed to consult with residents on implementing a levy of an Intensive Housing Management Charge (IHM) for residents within Sheltered Housing to cover the costs of the services being provided which will bring in additional income for the Council.

Noted that the consultation will include a cap on the IHM or Service charge for a very small number of residents who would otherwise be negatively financially affected by this charge.

Noted that outputs of the consultation will be reported to scrutiny for discussion before being presented to Cabinet for any final decisions.

This decision is subject to call-in until 5pm - 29 July
