Notification of Future Domiciliary Care Tender for Children and Young People aged 0-25 and Provider Forum Ealing Council holds a statutory responsibility to provide social care services to children and young people with additional needs and disabilities based on an assessment of need. Domiciliary care covers the provision of short term and longer term: • Homecare support home for children and young people with disabilities, additional needs and or complex health needs • Inclusion and befriending and positive activities to children and young people with additional needs Ealing Council currently provides a range of domiciliary care provision to 142 Individual children aged 0-18 providing a total of 77,000 hours. In 2015-16 packages of care were purchased and provided for 56 new children and young people. Service provision and needs range from low level support in the community and home to more complex and challenging needs.
