East Sussex Carers Centre - contract extension

The contract for the East Sussex Carers Centre is currently held by Care for the Carers as our Strategic Partner delivering a range of services to carers in East Sussex.


The current contract value is £3,291M over a term of 5.5 years. The service was procured in 2019, starting on 01/10/2019 with an option to extend for a further two years from April 2025.


The first 5.5 years of the contract end on 31/04/2025 and, after review, it is proposed that the current contract is extended for a further two years until 31 March 2027. This will enable the successful partnership work between the Council, Care for the Carers and the NHS to continue and develop and allow time for the additional services to be fully implemented and reviewed.


Future recommissioning options will be explored before a decision to tender the contract is made.
