II.3)Short description of the specific contract:

Kent County Council will shortly be inviting tenders for the delivery of service provider to develop and deliver:
(i) A health promotion training package that can be delivered through multiple formats including e-learning and face to face.
The health promotion training package will be targeted towards carers of those with Learning Disabilities, learning disability nursing homes and learning disability care homes across Kent and will include:
— Healthy eating/lifestyles;
— Keeping fit (include physically disabled);
— Support services available to stop smoking;
— Risks of smoking/excess alcohol/drugs;
— How to access services.
(ii) An education resource pack in easy read format on positive health promotion for those with Learning Disabilities.
The contents of the education resource pack will developed in consultation with a range of stakeholders including, KCC, KCHT and KMPT. However the following areas are viewed as ‘high risk’ as documented in the Kent County Council ‘Health Inequality Action Plan 2012′ and should therefore be included:
— Healthy lifestyles — Keeping active;
— Eating well — Guidance on food types;
— Easy read recipes — Practical Ideas;
— Risks associated with smoking/excess alcohol/drugs;
— How to access services.
It is expected that the contract for the development of both elements will commence on 2.1.2015 and will be completed during the three month period between 2.1.2015 and 31.3.2015.
This opportunity will be run via the Council’s Public Health Dynamic Purchasing System. Organisations that wish to tender for this opportunity will be required too successfully apply to be part of the Public Health Dynamic Purchasing System no later than the 15.12.2014.

Section VI: Complementary information

VI.1)Additional information:

People who have a learning disability often find it hard to access health improvement services and information because of a range of barriers. These can include, communication, failure to make reasonable adjustments and producing accessible information.
Because of these barriers, people with a learning disability need greater support to be able to live a healthy life. A learning disability public health workshop was held in June 2014 to understand which services were available for people with learning disabilities in Kent. Professionals from Kent learning disability services were invited to present on a range of areas including health promotion. It was ascertained that although a range of activities are provided, delivery and access is limited due to staffing constraints, equipment/resource availability and staff individual approach.
The Kent Health Inequalities Action Plan 2012 stated, ‘by 2015, there would be a focus on public health lifestyle interventions by targeting improvements in accessing services and promotion of healthy diet and exercise to reduce obesity. This proposal to provide training and education focusing on positive health promotion forms part of Kent’s Learning Disability Needs Assessment and Kent’s Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
