We are seeking a strategic partner to establish and manage a new Youth Housing Hub in Bristol. The partner will manage a co-located team including council housing advisers and social workers as well as partner staff. The hub will service young people aged 16-21 at risk of homelessness and care leavers. It will provide information, advice and assistance relating to housing including peer education in schools; it will carry out triage and assessments including home visits; it will work with young people and their families to prevent homelessness and help young people to return to or stay living with their family; it will make referrals into supported accommodation and coordinate case review meetings; it will help young people to access settled accommodation and help them access education, training and employment and other support to meet their holistic needs. The budget envelope is likely to be up to 300 000 GBP per year. Information will be published on the council website detailed above.
Providers are invited to attend a soft market testing event to meet commissioners details and how to book are on the following link: https://www.bristol.gov.uk/housing/commissioning-homelessness-prevention-services

South, Central and West CSU (SCW) has a combination of skills and expertise which mean that we are very well placed to support health and care organisations and systems to address quality improvement. SCW works alongside national and local organisations including new organisational forms such as Vanguards and the emerging Sustainability and Transformation Plan areas (STPs). We provide extensive business intelligence and data management services, and strong experience in financial, activity and performance measurement and analytics. In order to complement these capabilities and to enhance our capacity to provide support, SCW is seeking to establish a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) of suitably qualified organisations that can provide a range of consultancy support and additional capacity, normally working as part of blended teams with SCW staff and associates, delivering services to our customers. Please see the Procurement Documentation for further detailed information.
SCW works with a wide range of NHS organisations, and is increasingly supporting new organisational forms, provider organisations, patient safety initiatives and clinical networks. Analytics work for them includes developing clinical dashboards and supporting measurement for improvement. This work can be part of a wider quality improvement programme, and so we are seeking organisations to work with us to enable us to deliver a broader set of customer requirements, not just the analytics elements. We are also seeking partners to support population and predictive analytics work, including clinical grouping and case-mix adjustment.
SCW supports a number of programmes which can benefit health economics expertise. These include evaluations of changes to services or organisation of care, for example new care pathways, changes to access to services, or work to integrate services across organisational boundaries. As well as undertaking ‘one-off’ evaluations of service changes, we also support benefits realisation as part of ongoing programmes and projects which span areas such as digital transformation and education programmes. We are working with a number of organisations to develop new contracting models, for which modelling costs and assessing outcomes are key.
