Adult Care 2024/25 Care Provider Inflationary Uplift

It is necessary to take this urgent decision to ensure that care providers delivering Adult Social Care services receive notification of uplifts before the start of the new financial year (2024/25) on the 1st April 2024.
Finance and ASC officers have recognised the flawed nature of prior decision-making arrangements, and are looking to swiftly remedy the situation with an OED this year. With this learning in mind, a more robust process will be instituted for next year to authorise release of the annual uplift following budget approval. An OED will not be required next year to expedite the necessarily swift turnaround.
This year, Full Council budget authorisation was delayed until 29 February 2024. In addition, officers have needed additional time to recalculate prices in line with the new Single Framework capped rates.
