II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)
Rotherham MBC Supporting People Team is seeking suitably experienced organisations to tender for the provision of a housing related support service (floating support) for young people at risk of homelessness/tenancy breakdown.
Supporting People services aim to enable vulnerable people to live independently, preventing individuals from experiencing crisis and therefore requiring more costly service intervention.
The main aim of the service is to enable vulnerable young people to live independently within their own tenancy, preventing homelessness, and social exclusion, relapse and crisis admissions to hospital and enabling recovery and rehabilitation. The service will work closely with RMBC Housing Solutions Team to ensure that all clients receiving priority housing through the Housing Panel are supported appropriately. The successful provider will also be expected to work with vulnerable young people living in the private sector/other social housing.
The floating support service would include the following tasks (not exclusive list):
– Help in establishing personal safety and security.
– Support to understand tenancy agreements.
– Support to build self confidence and esteem.
– Developing domestic and independent living skills.
– Developing social skills/behaviour management.
– Help maintaining the safety and security of the accommodation.
– Supervision and monitoring of health and wellbeing.
– Help in setting up and maintaining a home or tenancy
– Help in gaining access to other services.
– Help in establishing social contacts and activities.
– Access to local communities.
– Advice, advocacy and liaison.
– Help in managing finances and benefit claims.
– Liaison with relevant agencies.
– Risk assessment.
The expected value of the contract on an annual basis will be circa GBP 50,000 and it is likely that the contract period will be 3 years with the option to extend for plus 1, plus 1 year.
The purpose of this pre-qualification questionnaire (PQQ) is to assist Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC) in deciding which Service Providers to invite to tender for services. Local Authorities must assure themselves that Service Providers, or potential Service Providers, are suitable organisations to hold a contract for the Council.
The information within this Pre-qualification Questionnaire will be validated by RMBC. This validation process will involve checking the returned information and supporting evidence/documentation.
Please answer every question. If the question does not apply to you please write Not Applicable and outline why; if you don’t know the answer please write Not Known.
“Authority” means the purchasing organisation that is seeking to award a contract.
Please complete all parts of this questionnaire fully, providing all the necessary supporting documentation before uploading to the yortender.co.uk system no later than Midnight on 4.2.2013.
