Delivering Differently in Neighbourhoods

Deliver a one year pilot Community Brokerage Project in Chapeltown.

Leeds City Council Adult Social Care is inviting applications from third sector organisations that have experience of working with people that have care and support needs to work on an exciting pilot project in the Chapeltown area of Leeds.

To support the delivery of the pilot we would like to engage a third sector partner to deliver the Community Brokerage element of the pilot, supporting people eligible for a Personal Budget in the area to develop their personal support plan and broker in the care and support services which best meet the outcomes outlined in that support plan.

The pilot aims to:

Embed community brokerage at a neighbourhood level, working in partnership with the Chapeltown, integrated health and social care, Neighbourhood Team.

 Support the development of a local, micro model of commissioning which builds on the existing assets within a community.

Work in partnership with other local third sector organisations operating in the pilot neighbourhood.

Achieve better outcomes for people with care and support needs and their carers, supporting them to remain independent for longer.

Timescales and funding available The pilot will run from mid-June 2015 for a period of 12 months and a total grant of £28,000 is available for a third sector organisation to pilot the Community Brokerage service.

In conjunction a further £20,000 is available to stimulate the development of activities and support in the Chapeltown area for people with a Personal Budget. This fund will be managed by the appointed Community Broker on behalf of the locality.
