Report - successful bid

This report provides an example of a successful bid (additional 102k) to mainstream funding for the Community equipment service. It illustrates the evidence the Partners used to build a case for the permanent funding of staffing levels required to deliver a more effective service including significant improvements to recycling, and more responsive equipment delivery.

Reports - financial model review

Both these reports outline the approach taken to review existing financial models. Although the basis for recharging Partners is slightly different in each area, the key theme focused on improving budget setting arrangements, frequency and content of reporting formats, Partnership meetings and overall governance and decision making responsibilities. The overall aim is to make clear that all Partners have equal responsibility and opportunity to inform the delivery of the Community Equipment service and no decisions should be made by any one Partner.

Budget template

This template has been used to support Partners to improve understanding of existing funding commitments and expenditure, and then review how best the service requires to be funded to improve service provision going forward.

Budget template

This example of a four weekly reporting template aims to help Partners create/redesign reports which provide a breakdown across service areas to help them identify trends and service pressures in specific service settings. This moves away from traditional examples of equipment reporting which focus on solely ‘profession’ based budgets and reflects the different care groups and integrated arrangements within these. It also provides a more detailed breakdown of equipment expenditure which acknowledges savings from recycling and other costs associated with equipment provision.

Guidance notes/ information

This note outlines the key themes from the original Good Practice guide in terms of the key components of an effective Financial model for a community equipment service. This can be used by Partners to help them review and benchmark their existing service and work through the identification of service improvements.

Guidance notes/ information

This note outlines some of the different Partnership financial models which have been developed in Scotland and compares them against a more traditional model. It offers some considerations in terms of ‘advantages/disadvantages’ and may be helpful for other Partners considering a review of their existing model within the emerging Integration arrangements.
