People are entitled to be in control of their own lives but sometimes, whether through frailty, disability, financial circumstances or social attitudes, they may find themselves in a position where their ability to exercise choice or represent their own interests is limited. In these circumstances, advocacy can help ensure that an individual's views and needs are heard, respected and acted upon. Provision's for the advocacy service will fall into 2 categories; statutory duties that Dorset County Council must provide under the Care Act 2014 and non-statutory duties that Dorset County Council may provide. Non-statutory advocacy in this context is defined as issues-based advocacy and helps people say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests and obtain the services they need. Dorset County Council will appoint a Provider who has a proven track record of providing advocacy services to adults and of working with local authorities in partnership to achieve this. The contract is to commence on 1.1.2016 and expire on 31.12.2016 (1 year). There is an option to extend for a further period of up to 1 year.

Provision of a Sensory Impairment Prevention and Support Service

Dorset County Council | Published March 31, 2016  -  Deadline May 10, 2016
cpvs
85000000, 98000000

Dorset County Council has historically maintained an in-house Sight and Hearing team to undertake all aspects of social care provision for adults impacted by a sensory disability. This includes drop in facilities at a number of sites across Dorset. These have very low footfall and their future is currently uncertain.

Financial constraints have enabled a strategic overview of how these services are provided in the future whilst taking into account the requirements of the Care Act which was implemented in 2015.

It is clear that a significant proportion of the work of this team sits with the preventative agenda, and it is this element that the Sensory Impairment Prevention and Support Service will address. Data has demonstrated that the number of people entering the in-house service does not reflect the actual number of people in Dorset living with an element of sensory impairment. We therefore need a service that provides greater opportunities for Dorset communities to gain information, advice and support.

The contract will offer the opportunity to develop the service in response to the level of need and support identified, with an extension allowing a targeted response to the evidence gathered in the first two years.

This tender is for a contract starting on 1.9.2016 for a period of 2 years to 31.8.2018 with an option to extend for up to a further 2 (1 + 1) years dependent upon performance during the initial contract period and continued availability of funding.

The commissioners are keen to receive bids from providers working together as a consortium.

Dorset Families Matter is a broad partnership that is committed to delivering the national Troubled Families initiative locally. As the lead partner Dorset County Council is seeking a range of suitably qualified and experienced service providers to provide: • a service, • an intervention and/or • an activity that can be termed a Family Support Package and can deliver positive outcomes in line with those set out in the Dorset Families Matter Outcomes Plan. The services available through the framework have a central role in helping to deal with problems experienced by children, young people and their families. It also brokers access to a range of more specialist services. The national Troubled Families initiative began in April 2012 and was originally intended to run for three years. The aim was to support families improve their well-being and reduce dependence on public sector organisations. The Dorset Families Matter (DFM) project is the local name given for this initiative. Since 2012 the operating context has changed considerably. The national programme is currently set to run until 31 March 2020 and the focus is now on local authorities with their public sector partners to transform the way services that support families with multiple and complex needs are delivered. To meet this challenge the approach and principles of Dorset Families Matter have been embedded through the newly established Family Partnership Zones. The Family Partnership Zones will deliver early help to identified children, young people and families where a provision of appropriate help can improve outcomes and sustain change. In the long term this will reduce dependence on public sector organisations and the associated costs of dependence. The underlying ethos of Dorset Families Matter is to proactively identify families that meet the eligibility criteria through cross matching data from partner agencies and then make proactive approaches to families offering additional support. Families are eligible if they meet at least two of the following headline identification criteria: • Parents and Children involved in crime or antisocial behaviour. • Children who have not been attending school regularly or are excluded • Children who need help (Child Protection or Child in Need status or equivalent concerns) • Adults out of work or at risk of financial exclusion and young people at risk of worklessness • Families affected by domestic violence and abuse • Parents and children with a range of health problems Any provision of support must be delivered either within Dorset County Council's boundaries or no more than 5 mile radius of them, but we have a working principle of as close to home as possible. The contracts will cover the period 1st February 2018 to 31st March 2020.

Category 5 - After school, weekend and holiday play, sport and activity sessions (age 5 to the young person's 18th birthday), throughout Dorset. Category 6 - Activity day and evening sessions for young people aged 15 to the young person's 18th birthday throughout Dorset. For categories 1-3 service is only available to children and young people who have been assessed by the Social Care Team and meet the threshold to receive this level of support. Service from providers successfully placed on Framework Categories 1 - 2 will be called off following a referral made by Dorset County Council Social Care Teams. Service from providers under Framework Category 3 may be by way of call off or by annual block contract. Providers successfully placed on Framework Categories 4 - 6 will be invited to take part in a mini competition at the start of each financial year to allocate funds and define support for that year. Providers need to apply for each Category they are interested in and each Category will be evaluated independently. At the end of this exercise there will be an expansion of numbers of providers under each of the six framework categories. Existing framework members are invited to apply for membership of categories additional to their current category(s) if they are able to extend the range of opportunities they offer. This opportunity is due to go live on Supplying the Southwest on the 2nd October 2017 with a closing date of midday 23rd October 2017. Within the above categories there are some specific services that we are particularly seeking including Buddy Schemes, Sessional Support and Saturday/ Sunday Clubs. Further information is available in the Project attachments.
