The scheme has been developed in partnership between Derbyshire County Council, Housing 21, and Derbyshire Dales District Council. A local charity the Wirksworth Care group has contributed to the capital and revenue costs through local fundraising and has also purchased two units which will be used to provide respite care. The scheme will offer a range of communal facilities as well as a Derbyshire County Council day service. The aim is that the facilities and services available at the scheme will benefit people from the local community as well as the residents that will live there. This will ensure that the scheme truly becomes part of the community. In terms of management this scheme is managed by Housing 21 that employs the scheme manager. A tender was issued for the care contract and this was also awarded to Housing 21. The Day Care service will be provided by DCC using a mixture of in-house staff and Housing 21 staff, where there is capacity. The respite units will be managed on a day to day basis by DCC using care hours from the scheme care contract. Housing 21 staff employed at Waltham House will also provide domiciliary care to local people in the Wirksworth area.
