Wenlock Childrens Home Contract Variation and Extension with Hexagon Care Services
Resolved: (i) That approval be given to extend and vary the contract with Hexagon Care Services to facilitate a three-bed residential care provision for children with particularly complex needs.
(ii) That authority be delegated to the Corporate Director of People (in consultation with the Director of Governance or her delegated officers) to take such steps as are necessary to enter into the resulting agreement.
Reason: This provision is required to support sufficiency of places for vulnerable young people in the council’s care. Providing care for vulnerable children in the city rather than elsewhere results in better outcomes for children and more efficient use of council resources.
