Report by Head of Service - Strategy and Commissioning

5

A report by the Head of Service - Strategy and Commissioning, Moray Council, updated the Board on the implications of the increase to the Scottish Living Wage (SLW) and the requirement for the SLW to be extended to sleepover hours over the course of 2018/19.

 

The report advised there will be a budgetary impact from the increase from £8.51 to £8.77 (pending review) in the Scottish Local Government Living Wage for Council employees and that a report is being prepared to the Corporate Management Team of Moray Council.  Arrangements are being made to implement the change with effect from 1 September 2018.

 

In response to a question from Mr Donaghey the Chief Financial Officer advised the increase would be paid from 1 September with no backdated payments being made.  She further advised there is funding in the budget as this was part of the additional funding given previously by the Government.

 

The Chair was of the opinion that information in the report under the Equalities/Social Economic Impact heading was written to cover the impact on services and she would like this to cover the impact on people in the future.

 

Thereafter the Board agreed to: 

  1. note the uplift of 3.4% which has been applied for 2018/19 in relation to social care providers including Shared Lives carers and Direct Payments; and

  2. approve the uplift to the SLW sleepover nights rate and draw down the associated funding from 1 September 2018 to ensure consistency with the Local Government application and in line with the Scottish Government requirement to implement within the 2018/19 financial year.
