Support for key suppliers and grant-supported providers during COVID-19

Our Key Supplier Support Guidance sets out how we will deal with requests for support under contract arrangements from key suppliers and grant-supported providers in response to the COVID-19 emergency and who are at risk because the payment mechanism in the contract no longer reflects the true cost to the supplier/provider.

It has been developed with Angus Health and Social Care Partnership and reflects national policy and guidance.


How to apply

Apply for support for key suppliers

Once we receive your application our internal panel will assess it and aim to contact you within 21 days.

We may need to contact you with questions about your application before we make a decision.

If your application is approved we will send you a Contract Variation letter which must be signed before we can pay/implement the approved support..

If your application is refused we will write to inform you.

In return for support, as well as normal/standard contract terms for the services/supplies concerned, businesses must agree reciprocal terms including:

  • working with us in good faith
  • not to apply for funding under both this policy and government business support (see section 4.7 of the guidance below for the full list).
