Issue details

Home care and independent living

Procurement strategy for Support at Home (homecare) services for residents in Hammersmith & Fulham who have assessed eligible needs. Support at Home aligns with the administrations manifesto commitments and the council’s independent living strategy, working compassionately with residents to provide quality care and support, allowing people to remain in their home and local community for as long as possible. The focus of the new procured services is to have better continuity of care by having carers who are consistent and well trained, a more Outcome Focused Service, giving residents more control and flexibility on how their care and support is provided, and enabling independent living for residents with a strength based approach.
