Report by Director of Adult Social Care and Health

Additional documents:


13.1       The Cabinet considered a report by the Director of Adult Social Care and Health together with comments of the People Scrutiny Committee Review Board.


13.2 It was RESOLVED to –


1)    agree that the current service continues through 2018/19 and that self-care groups are established during this period to sustain support in future years;

2)    agree to give notice to terminate the agreement with the HIV Support Service and withdraw funding; and

3)    delegate to the Director of Adult Social Care and Health authority to take all necessary actions to give effect to the implementation of the above recommendations




13.3    The impact of ceasing funding for this service to support people with HIV is likely to increase social isolation.  However, the availability of alternative local services means that maintaining this provision is not considered good value nor sustainable given financial constraints.
