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

Following the findings of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) in Rotherham (1997-2013) by Professor Alexis Jay, published October 2014, Rotherham Council responded to the immediate needs of victims and survivors of child sexual exploitation by funding increased capacity of relevant voluntary and community sector organisations across Rotherham to provide additional post abuse support. The main interventions included counselling and one to one support to respond to individual’s specific needs. This immediate response was grant funded on a short term basis initially until the 31.3.2015 but then extended to the 30.6.2015 to enable the completion of a comprehensive CSE needs analysis and more time for victims and survivors of CSE to have their say about the services provided and influence the longer term commissioning plans.
The anticipated duration of this longer term contract is 5 year including extension periods.
Funding has been committed by RMBC at a total amount of 600 000 GBP for the 3 years 2015 to 2018. The funding available from 1.7.2018 until 30.6.2020 will depend on whether the contract(s) are extended for a further 2 years. This extension will be based on whether the demand still remains as predicted and the funding is available.
Organisations can bid for 1 or more of the three specific areas of work and therefore receive the indicative funding available for each area detailed below. The funding could also be allocated to 1 organisation if this was felt to be the most appropriate proposal.
Service Area 1 — Outreach, practical, emotional support and advocacy for young people (up to the age of 25)
Service Area 2 — Outreach, practical, emotional support and advocacy for adults.
Service Area 3 — Evidence based therapeutic intervention by qualified counselor and/or family therapist for all ages.
RMBC are seeking suitably experienced organisations to provide support to individuals who have experienced CSE. This support includes both outreach, practical, emotional support and advocacy; as well as evidence based therapeutic interventions by qualified counselors and/or family therapist.
