Response

I enclose most of the information you requested. However, you may also wish to contact Kibble Education and Care Centre at Goudie Street, Paisley, PA3 2LG, or via e-mail at:
communications@kibble.org, who may be able to help you.

The information contained in the response to this request is derived from the Interventions for Vulnerable Youth (IVY) Monitoring Report for quarter 1, 2020 – 2021, which covers the period 1 April 2020 – 30 June 2020, and the 2020-2021 grant letter to Kibble for the IVY service. We are not yet in receipt of the quarter 2 Monitoring Report, which will cover the period 1 July – 30 September. We can therefore only offer data relating to the first quarter of the 2020-21 Financial Year.

Funding
1. How much total funding has been granted to Kibble since 31 March 2020 by the Scottish Government?

A total of up to £306,166 has been offered to Kibble for delivery of the IVY service between 1 April 2020 and 31 March 2021. A grant claim for £45, 671.97 has been received from Kibble for the delivery of the IVY service for the first quarter of the current 2020-21 grant; this is lower than the anticipated amount for that quarter.

Clinics
1. How many Level 1 Clinics have been delivered since 31 March 2020?

During the first quarter of the Financial year 2020-2021, seven Level 1 clinics were delivered.

2. Does this meet the agreed target agreed of 2 Clinics per week?
The agreed target, as stated in the IVY grant offer of 2020-21 is “at least two level 1 consultation clinics per week (minimum 50 per year)”. Although IVY have thus far not attained their target of two Level 1 clinics per week, they are within their projected target of a minimum of 50 per year.

3. How many new Level 2 cases have been started since 31 March 2020?
In the first quarter (April to July 2020) one young person was in the process of receiving a level 2 assessment.

4. Does this meet the agreed target agreed of 15 cases per annum?
As the target is 15 cases per annum at level 2, it is unclear as to whether or not IVY will meet this agreed target. This will be monitored throughout the reporting year and can only be fully assessed at the end of the 2020-21 Financial Year. Currently, however, IVY appear to be on track for delivering this target.

5. How many new Level 3 cases have been started since 31 March 2020?
Four young people received input at Level 3 during the first quarter (April to July 2020).

6. Does this meet the agreed target of 15 cases per annum?
As the target is 15 cases per annum for level 3, it is unclear as to whether or not IVY will meet this agreed target. This will be monitored throughout the reporting year and can only be fully assessed at the end of the 2020-21 Financial Year. Currently, however, IVY appear to be on track for delivering this target.

7. How much funding has the Scottish Government been refunded by Kibble for failing to meet its targets from 31 March 2020 to 31 July 2020?
The Scottish Government have not received a refund from Kibble for the IVY service. Kibble submitted a grant claim in the first quarter at a reduced amount than anticipated for the first quarter. This reflects the reduced staffing costs for IVY in the first quarter.

Footnote: Revised responses to questions 5 & 6 released on 18 September 2020

Question 5: How many new Level 3 cases have been started since 31 March 2020?
Answer: Four young people received input at Level 3 during the first quarter (April to July 2020), however the information we hold does not confirm whether these are new or continuing cases from the Financial Year 2019-2020.

Question 6: Does this meet the agreed target of 15 cases per annum?
Answer: As the target is 15 cases per annum for level 3, it is unclear as to whether or not IVY will meet this agreed target. This will be monitored throughout the reporting year and can only be fully assessed at the end of the 2020-21 Financial Year.
