The value of the new contract will be in the region of
£193 million and is dependent on the amount of external investment secured and the scope of the new integrated drug and alcohol service.  The funding will be a mixture of public health grant that Leeds City Council receives combined with non-recurrent grant funding from OHID to deliver the 10 year strategy.
