Supporting People funded services recommissioning

Supporting People funded services recommissioning

Information on the recommissioning of services funded by Supporting People, including commissioning timetable, Co-Production events and progress.

A decision was made by Cabinet in December 2017 to reduce the budget for Supporting People services form 1 April 2018 and to co-design future services by 1 January 2019. 

We'll be working closely with all individuals, groups and organisations that are involved in Supporting People Funded services in Bristol to seek their views on the best options going forward. 

This page will be updated with the lastest information when it's available,

May 2018 

We are now in discussions with providers, service users and other stakeholders about how future services could be designed and recommissioned.  

A stakeholder steering group is meeting to steer this process and Co-Production events with stakeholders are now taking place.
