Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


88 Travis Gardens, is currently a residential care home run by Rotherham, Doncaster and South Humberside NHS Foundation Trust (RDASH) and provides residential care for 6 residents. The services at Travis Gardens were to be transformed to supported living service from 1st July 2019, subject to registration with CQC (Care Quality Commission). To register as a supported living service, CQC registration demands that the property requires a registered social landlord (RSL) to manage the property and support the tenants through assured leasehold agreements.


To directly award a residential care service contract to Walsingham Support at 88 Travis Gardens for a period of 12 months.

Alternative options considered:

Option 1 - Identify and award the lease to a registered social landlord for the property.
Option 2 - Remove Travis Gardens from the Supported Living Transformation Programme until a landlord is appointed.
Option 3 - Walsingham Support - negotiate with Walsingham Support to provide Residential Care Services at Travis Gardens.
