An uplift to our Supported Living rates for Adults with Disabilities has been agreed for 2021/22. ECC's hourly rate for AWD supported living will now be £17.24, or £19.12 for individuals and services that meet our enhanced complex criteria. Night sleeping rates will remain at £12.68. These rates have been calculated according to the increase to National Living Wage and inflation.
These rates will apply to all packages of support that are currently paid below this level and will be effective from the start of the first payment period in April 2021
We are now in the process of making the required changes to all packages, and will write to providers individually with dates and details.
