i)     That the ongoing review of the Resettlement pathway and the interim contractual arrangements that had been put in place to continue the existing service until the pathway review was concluded and a future delivery model was agreed, be noted.


ii)    That the first phase of the review findings be implemented and that a waiver be sought to the financial and procurement rules to extend the contract for the Early Intervention & Prevention Service for 6 months to allow for the phased implementation of changes to the Early Intervention and Prevention services.


iii)  That the review of the resettlement pathway be concluded and a report setting out the new delivery model and the transition into new delivery arrangements be brought back to Executive.


Reason: To ensure ongoing service resilience and the delivery of early improvements during the next phase of the review of the delivery model for homelessness resettlement.
