The provider will also be expected to manage the contract within the budget allocated. The current service provides personal support and accommodation to twelve (12) men over the age of fifty (50) with enduring alcohol misuse needs with significant homelessness histories.

The target group for the service is older men experiencing long-term alcohol misuse needs with significant histories of homelessness, mental health needs and increasing physical care needs. Although the current cohort of residents in the service is not less than fifty (50) years of age, the service will need to cater for men aged forty-five (45) and older. Given the age of the residents and alcohol dependency histories, the service may also need to manage residents with some challenging behaviours and cognitive impairments due to long-term alcohol misuse, other dual diagnosis care needs, and support some residents who are actively misusing alcohol by taking a harm reduction approach. The successful provider will need to have suitable premises within the borough of Islington to provide registered residential care and met all relevant regulations in the operation thereof, including all building regulations, and be able to provide the service from 1 April 2016. The aim of Contract is the provision of high-quality residential care which emphasises rehabilitation and recovery. The successful provider must be able to develop and maintain a close working relationship with local secondary mental health services, particularly the local community mental health teams for those residents subject to a Care Programme Approach (CPA) care plan. The provider will need to have appropriately-trained staff 24 hours per day from the start of the service. Providers expressing an interest in this tender should be suitably experienced in providing residential care for older men with long-term alcohol misuse and mental health and physical care needs, demonstrating how they have enhanced the quality of life of those using its services by reducing social isolation, promoting participation and integration, and prolonging independence. This contract is for a single service which is not being divided into lots.
