This report seeks approval to enter into a new contract with a key provider of day opportunities until 31st March 2026 with the potential full term to 31st March 2030.
The primary reason for this recommendation is to provide consistency of service to current attendees, whilst achieving a better financial agreement under a block contract rather than spot purchasing, in addition to providing financial assurance to a key provider.
