Dear Service Provider,
Core Funding – Review and Confirm Reminder
This is a reminder the Review and Confirm window is open until Monday 12 June inclusive. If a Partner Service does not complete the Review and Confirm process within the required timeframe, Core Funding payments will be placed on hold until such a time as the process is completed.
Please note, the late submission of a Review and Confirm form noting a decrease to the base rate value will be effective from the change effective date rather than the last day of the review and confirm window.
Preparing for Review and Confirm
Core Funding applications/application changes must be at an Approved status prior to completing the Review and Confirm form.
If your previous application/application change is at ‘Approved’ and you have an application change at a ‘Draft’ status you must abandon the draft application prior to completing the Review and Confirm form.
If an application is at ‘Referred back’ Service Providers are required to submit an application change to rectify the refer back reason outlined. Once the application change is approved, you must then proceed to complete the Review & Confirm form.
To support services in completing a Review & Confirm form, a detailed guidance document and tailored training videos are available here.
Core Funding Programme 2023/24
Partner services who have completed the June Review and Confirm process will be able to transfer their most recent Core Funding application data into their new Core Funding application for the 2023/24 programme year. Therefore, partner services are encouraged to complete the June Review and Confirm process as soon as possible within the specified timeframe.
Further information on the Core Funding application process for the 2023/24 programme year will be available in the coming weeks.
