Freedom of Information Request

Apthorp Care Home Closure

Received: 28 October 2021

The closure of Apthorp in the midst of a social care crisis in the UK.

I would like to gain some understanding into the closure and what the future plans are for the building and am putting in an FOI request Under the Freedom of Information Act. Please can you provide me with a comment touching specifically on the below:

* Where the residents have been moved (whether in the borough or out)
* Whether staff have been made redundant
* What Barnet plans to do with the building once the works have been done - will it remain under the care of the local authority or outsourced
* I have also been informed by a source that it may be sold to Capita - is this true
* Is it true that the council is responsible for the upkeep and repairs of the building
* Is it true that if the council was to sell on the contract, they would have to return the building to Catalyst in a good state of repair at their expense
