The Council bought a former Care Home at Sidegate Lane, Ipswich and and reconfigured the accommodation specifically for use as temporary accommodation for homeless households. The building work has now been completed and the facility is partially occupied. Before the facility can be fully occupied, there is a requirement to procure a staff alarm system, that can locate and provide assistance to an officer anywhere in the building or grounds, if activated. It is expected that the contract value is up to £35,000.
