Cornwall’s Supporting People Partnership has awarded three new contracts which will see £2.1 million invested into key services for the people of Cornwall. The contracts will provide housing related support services to a wide range of vulnerable and disadvantaged people across Cornwall, including older people, young people leaving care, homeless families and people with learning disabilities.
The contract for West Cornwall has been awarded to Stonham, a local provider who has been delivering housing related support services in Cornwall for over 25 years.
The contracts for East and Central Cornwall have been awarded to ClearSprings Management Limited. This is the company’s first contract in Cornwall and they will be working with local service providers to deliver housing related support services to a wide range of people across Cornwall.
Welcoming the awarding of the new contracts, Councillor Pat Aston ( Kerrier District Council, Chair of Cornwall Supporting People Commissioning Body said “ These new contracts will improve the quality and range of housing related support services across the whole of the county. They will also provide better value for money from the public purse which means we can offer these services to more people.”
“Housing related support services are key to supporting local people to remain independent in their own homes or to move into independent accommodation for the first time.”
“We are delighted to be working with our local partner Stonham who has a long track record of delivering high quality services in Cornwall. I am also delighted that the award of two contracts to ClearSprings gives us the opportunity to bring new experience and expertise into Cornwall.”
