II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

Norfolk County Council wishes to enter into a contract for the provision of a substance misuse recovery community programme, for a duration of 24 months with an option to extend for a further 12 months.
The service is split into three main elements.
The 1st element will be a pilot in an area which corresponds to one of the Norfolk Recovery Partnership Hub areas — Norwich, Great Yarmouth, Thetford, King’s Lynn or North Walsham and will provide a community based rehabilitation programme. Individuals will be able to access the benefits of residential rehabilitation programme on a daily attendance basis rather than a long term residential basis. The programme will support but will not replicate the structured programmes that form part of the Norfolk Recovery Partnership after-care package. The provider will source and equip a venue, recruit appropriately trained and supervised staff, and develop the programme. The provider will run two programmes for a minimum of 12 people in the 1st year and demonstrate success for the individuals in terms of numbers who have completed the programmes. The programme will include support for clients who require child care or transportation.The provider will, on successful completion of the pilot, develop the programme to roll out across Norfolk within the lifetime of the contract. Success would be demonstrated by a minimum of 50 % of participants completing each of the 2 programmes. In addition, evidence will be required to demonstrate that participants have increased their recovery capital sufficiently to not require transfer back to treatment services within a 6 month period.

The 2nd element will identify and develop capacity in localities across Norfolk to build recovery, communities and develop recovery focussed resources. The provider will work closely with the commissioned treatment provider, Norfolk Recovery Partnership, to ensure that clients leaving treatment services are able to move into these communities and access the resources provided within them. The provider will work closely with other agencies and organisations such as housing, employment and education providers to reduce the likelihood of services and resources being duplicated. Providers should ensure that individuals in these communities are able to access these resources as part of their recovery journey. These resources will focus around a local ‘hub’ which will be developed by the provider and will utilise existing resources within the local community. The provider will work with cohorts of individuals to develop the recovery community hubs and support them to develop their own groups and projects as appropriate.

The 3rd element will be the development and delivery of a Recovery Champions programme. These Champions will operate at strategic, therapeutic and community levels as outlined in The Drug Strategy 2010. They will work to change entrenched culture (where necessary) and demonstrate that hope for full recovery is possible and achievable. The programme will include the development of local Recovery Forums within the 1st year of the contract within the areas specified. These forums will be developed across the county and will provide an opportunity for groups, agencies, organisations and stakeholders to meet and share experience and best practice and to promote their services. The Forums will encourage collaborative working and innovative service development.
