Summary of Matter or Issue Requiring Decision:

Decision to extend the contract for CP929-13 Devon County Council’s Contribution into Homelessness Prevention and Support Contract 18+.

Decision Taken:

The contract extension will commence on 01/04/2023, for the period of 6 Months until 30/09/2023.


  • Alabare Christian Care and Support
  • Bournemouth Churches Housing Association (BCHA)
  • Exeter YMCA Housing Association
  • Sanctuary Housing Association T/A Sanctuary Supported Living
  • Westward Housing Association
Summary of Reason(s) for Decision Taken:

The decision to extend this contract has been taken to provide market stability and to ensure continuity of support for people whilst Devon County Council undertakes consultation on the proposal to cease the adult social care 18+ homelessness prevention contribution and contract. A final decision on the contract will not be made until after the consultation has concluded and responses considered.

Summary of Alternatives or Options considered and rejected:

The option of ceasing our 18+ homelessness prevention contribution without consultation on the proposal is likely to place people who are homeless at increased risk

None to declare.
