Description:
Currently a review of both internal and external transport provision is being undertaken in order to ensure that it is being used as efficiently and effectively as possible in order to make it sustainable. The review is looking at areas such as maximising internal usage (transport to get citizens to and from Nottingham City Council services) and external usage (transport used to get citizens to and from commissioned private and voluntary service providers); ensuring routes are efficient and maximising vehicle occupancy as long as it is safe and appropriate to do so. The review aims to reduce the reliance on specialised transport by supporting citizens to use public transport independently where it is deemed safe and appropriate to do so and the transport Policy is seen as the mechanism to fairly bring about the changes required

Description:
The proposal is for a change to the current vacant dedicated Access Officer post within the Building Control team. Previously there has been a dedicated post within the Building Controls team which has focussed on accessibility requirements both within Local Authority buildings and with external planning and building control proposals across the City. This post is now vacant. As part of the budget proposals, it is proposed to develop this post to enable it to undertake part time work on the specialist Accessibility advice and the remainder of the time on core Building Control work. This will enable the part funding of this post through fees therefore increasing the sustainability of this post whilst ensuring that the Accessibility advice work continues. Consideration has been undertaken of the scope of the Building Regulations legislation and it is considered that the service provided by this post is above the Statutory Building Regulations minimum.

Description:
To consult on a review of charging for adult social care. This will result in citizens who are financially able contributing more towards the full cost of their personal budget. This proposal is based on increases but will not amount to full recovery. It is proposed Day Care will increase from 12 to 20 pounds per day and transport to Day Centres will increase from 8 to 16 pounds per return journey. It is important to note that the Fairer Charging policy ensures that citizens only pay for Council care services if they can afford to do so and that many citizens¿ care is fully subsidised by the Council as they have been assessed as being unable, financially, to contribute towards the cost of their care. Increasing charges for those who can afford to pay with support long term sustainability of the services.

This is because people¿s needs usually reduce following discharge from hospital with a time limited Reablement or rehabilitation intervention delivered in their own home or in a bed based facility in the community

Document published 14/02/2018

Description:
As part of the Council's strategic budget proposals for 2018/19, a proposal has been submitted to make a 250,000 pounds reduction in cost. This will be achieved through a number of approaches, including: integrating service delivery, increasing income (via selective insourcing of current services), reducing current supply chain costs and more efficient use of resources. It is not anticipated that there will be any direct impact upon Citizens and the proposed savings do not involve the deletion of occupied posts.

Description:
Reduction in Annual Grant: Futures Advice, Skills and Employment Futures are currently contracted on an annual basis to provide a NEET reduction/prevention service on behalf of Nottingham City Council. The service provides support to young people at risk of and who are NEET aged 14 to 18 or over 19 with a disability or Educational Health Care Plan, to participate in education and training, targeting its interventions to young people within 'priority group one' who are more likely to be vulnerable as, for example they are a looked after child, a care leaver, or are a young carer. A reduction of 185,000 pounds is proposed from the annual grant, which will be managed through a reduction of management overhead. This is therefore unlikely to have a negative impact on front line service delivery.

Document published 14/02/2018

Description:
An internal business case and review was undertaken regarding the future support of the local authority fair access functions. Based on this review, the council have decided to support these function internally and not to procure this service externally. The decision to bring all fair access processes and staff involved in these processes in-house to create a holistic primary and secondary support. This will require changes to create an appropriate structure to support these services internally; including TUPE implications with current roles supported by the schools partnership (1x Inclusion Co-ordinator and 1x Complex Case Officer) as these posts were created as a pilot to support the functions of fair access and therefore relevant to TUPE requirements. These posts are funded through the fair access protocol allocation, and therefore the decision does not have a cost value, other than efficiencies in the service provided. This will provide greater control and dedicated resource to fair access to support schools and families of pupils `hard to place¿

Description:
Whilst services commenced April 2017, Nottingham City Council and the Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG¿s) are proposing to make financial savings through the following measures ¿ 1. Reduce funding to Carers Hub by removing 1-2-1 counselling sessions after 1 April 2018. 2. Reduce funding to Carers Respite through underspend and reducing maximum capacity from March 2018. The service is paid at an hourly rate, based on usage, so any reductions in costs can only be achieved by reducing capacity in the service. Funding reductions will include both the underspend from early 2017/18, when the service was newly introduced and not operating at full capacity, and reducing maximum capacity in the service from March 2018.
