Peterborough City Council - Re-ablement service PE1
Issue: Increase use of independent providers for re-ablement services
Re-ablement offers intensive and tailored support for up to six weeks to enable people who have suffered an illness or injury to return to independent living. There is good evidence nationally that these services are effective with people, with more than 50 percent no longer requiring ongoing statutory support.
Currently the service is delivered both in-house and by contracted providers. It is proposed to increase the use of the independent sector and reduce the size of the in-house service. This will allow us to provide the same level of care but achieve savings of £50k in 2013/14 and £100k the year after.
2013/14 £k: 50
2014/15 £k: 100
2015/16 £k: 100
2016/17 £k: 100
2017/18 £k: 100
