Description of the contract

In this present instance, ESPO is working on behalf of Leicestershire County Council (the Council) to undertake a procurement to establish a service for the delivery of community respite services for carers in Leicestershire. The service is for eligible (as assessed by the Council) Carers who look after a friend or relative who has an illness or disability and where the carer is unable to leave the cared for person. The Council wishes to set up a framework of service providers who can offer flexible home-based respite care, in which the cared-for person can be supported at home or in the community in order to provide a break for the carer at a time and in the way which best suits them. The aim of the Carers Community Respite Service is to make a positive difference to the lives of carers of adults in Leicestershire, and to sustain carers who have complex caring responsibilities due to their personal circumstances and those who they care for. There are no specific lots, but tenderers can indicate which area(s) they are able to service – Leicestershire County Council or its seven Borough/District councils. As part of the procurement process we will hold a bidders forum at ESPO (Leicester) on Monday 2 February 2015 at 2pm. To reserve a place, please email Jane Blois ( j.blois@espo.o rg ) stating the name of the person(s) attending the forum and their contact details.
