Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 06 June 2022.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
With regard to the Jersey Care Model / HCS and the individual contracts they have with individual Charities to implement this new care initiative, please supply copies of the contracts and the amount each charity is paid per year for the services it provides.
Health and Community Services (HCS) do not have any contracts with charities directly relating to implementing the new initiative, but many charities working with us to implement the activities of the Jersey Care Model programme.
Below is the list of commissioned charities, however, we work with multiple other charities that are funded on an individual basis, e.g. Les Amis, Autism Jersey and many more.
- Dementia Jersey
- Recovery college
- Jersey Hospice
- Good Companions
- Age Concern
- My Voice
- Mind Jersey
The total value of contracts with the commissioned charities listed above for 2022 is £10,421,057.
HCS are unable to provide copies of contracts or a further breakdown of costs by service provider, as it would likely prejudice the commercial interests of both HCS and the commissioned services. Therefore, Article 33 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has been applied to this part of the request.
Article 33 - Commercial interests
Information is qualified exempt information if –
(a) it constitutes a trade secret; or
(b) its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of a person (including the scheduled public authority holding the information).
Article 33 is a qualified exemption and as such we have conducted a prejudice test as required by law. HCS has assessed whether, in all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in supplying the information is outweighed by the prejudice that would likely result by doing so. It is recognised that there is a public interest in transparency about the contracts held between HCS and charities or other commissioned services. However, having considered the public interest, HCS has concluded that the public interest in disclosing this information is outweighed by the potential prejudice that would likely result, as the services provided are under regular review and contracts need to be negotiated periodically. As such, disclosing detailed contract information would likely harm securing value for money when commissioning new services or re-negotiating contracts in future.
