The Council seeks to engage with contractors to create a multi-lot framework agreement to coordinate the Business Development programme in conjunction with the Council's Economic Development team providing consultancy and training to SMEs within East Ayrshire.
East Ayrshire Council, on behalf of its service delivery organisation known as the East Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership, requires a dynamic service which follows the ethos of a social enterprise. The Service Provider will be experienced in supporting adults with a learning disability, Autistic Spectrum or Mental Ill Health.
This is a business that is motivated to achieve two main goals: to achieve social, cultural, community economic and environmental outcomes and to earn revenue; thus increase capacity and self sufficiency for individuals and impacting on their communities and lessening reliance on the social safety net and statutory services.
The service will be based on community benefits and opportunities for all who attend and will be for a period of 2 years with 2 one-year extension options.
