How do Shared Hours Offer agreements affect clients with Direct Payments?

The Council does not have a contract with a provider for any service that they provide to a person who takes their personal budget as a Direct Payment. As a result, as we are not party to these contracts, any inflationary uplift that the Council awards to its contracts cannot legally apply to the contract between a provider and its other customers.

The client reviews conducted by Devon County Council at each property will result in an agreed number of shared and/or individual hours service required to deliver appropriate outcomes for these clients. The resulting Agreement Schedule provided to you enables discussion of future arrangements with any person who takes their personal budget as a Direct Payment.
