The contract is expected to be awarded for the period 1st May 2015 – 30th April 2018, subject to continued Welsh Government and Home Office funding and may be extended, subject to performance, for a period of up to two years.

The indicative budget for the provision of both services is approximately £4,444,224 (full year).
