TENDER: Barnsley Prior Information Notice Support to Live At Home Services


Main Contract Detail


Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council


PRIOR INFORMATION NOTICE - Barnsley Support to Live At Home Services for Vulnerable Adults


Please note this Prior Information Notice (PIN) is not a call for competition.

We want Barnsley people to stay as healthy and independent for as long as possible and to recover from temporary periods of ill-health and other needs as quickly as possible. We believe everyone has potential to be as independent and live as full a life as possible.

As part of its strategic plans to transform health and social care services across the borough, Barnsley Adult Joint Commissioning Team will shortly be commissioning a range of new, cost effective services that promote personalisation and supports local people to achieve maximum independence in their own home. We are moving towards service models that focus on people’s wellbeing outcomes and that clearly embed the principles of recovery, re- ablement and prevention of further need; an explicit move away from previous traditional models of care and support that have been largely based upon maintenance and prevention of deterioration. These locally delivered services will specifically support Barnsley communities and Barnsley individuals to maximise their independence and outcomes and reduce dependency where possible.

Attached is a brief description of the tender opportunities the council will shortly be advertising. This includes an urgent procurement for Autism services, under the Lighter Touch Regime, for which the Contract Notice is imminent.

Week commencing 09/05/16 the PIN will also be available to view on the following Tenders Electronic Daily (TED) website:-http://ted.europa.eu/TED/main/H omePage.do
