Dear Mr Makam

My Ref: 899855

Thank you for providing your clarification; however I we now have further clarification for you:

Q1. Plymouth City Council no longer has 'housing-related support' services. Instead we provide a wide range of services to allow people to live independently, or move to independent living. On this basis, do you still require the contract details of these wider-ranging services?

Kind Regards
