The core purpose of adult care and support is to help people to achieve the outcomes that matter to them in their life. The Care Act 2014 specifies that Local Authorities must promote wellbeing when carrying out any care and support functions in respect of a person. ‘Wellbeing’ is a broad concept, and it is described as relating to the following areas in particular: • Personal dignity (including treatment of the individual with respect) • Physical and mental health and emotional wellbeing • Protection from abuse and neglect • Control by the individual over day-to-day life (including over care and support provided and the way it is provided) • Participation in work, education, training or recreation • Social and economic wellbeing • Domestic, family and personal relationships • Suitability of living accommodation • The individual’s contribution to society. Promoting wellbeing means actively seeking improvements in aspects of wellbeing when carrying out a care and support function in relation to an individual at any stage of the process from the provision of information and advice to reviewing a care and support plan. Currently the Supported Living Service that is provided across the Oldham Borough is fragmented. The future commissioning intentions of the Council is to provide a more holistic approach to the delivery of its service provision to help improve better outcomes for service users. To achieve this approach the service has been divided into Districts within the Oldham Borough. Tenderers will be invited to bid for a property/properties within a district(s). The Framework will be in place until 31 March 2019 and is a collaborative contract with Oldham CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group), the Council will be Lead Commissioner for this contract. The contract will be for Council commissioned provision and for joint funded clients with the CCG.
