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

North Somerset Council’s Turning the Tide Social Impact Bond (SIB) aims to reduce the need for children to be looked after by commissioning a service that works with families to help children safely stay at home and by keeping placements in care short through reuniting children with their families as soon as possible.
The service will focus on improving family functioning and resilience to improve outcomes for an estimated 240 children over an initial 5 year period with an opportunity to extend the contract to 7 years. We have explored family preservation models but would be interested in any approaches that would deliver the outcomes.
Families to be worked with will fall into 2 specific cohorts as follows:
Cohort 1:
— Families with a child aged 10-17 currently looked after under S.20 of the Children’s Act (1989) and with a plan to return home.
Cohort 2:
— Families with a child aged 10-17 on the edge of care and at imminent risk of becoming looked after on a voluntary basis.
Using a payment by results model, service provider/s will receive payments linked to key primary outcomes such as:
— The child being reunited with the family and returning to the family home (cohort 1);
— Improved measured family functioning and child well being;
— The child remains home with their family (cohort 2);
— Improved measured family functioning and children well being.
This procurement will follow the Competitive Dialogue approach. We are recognising the OJEU EU process for the Competitive Dialogue approach whilst using the flexibility of the Light Touch Regime.

This opportunity will be managed online using our eProcurement portal: www.supplyingthesouthwest.org.uk

All tender documents will be made available on this portal, and all questions should be posed through the portal also. We will not accept any calls direct to the council.

We anticipate the Tender documents being made available by Thursday, 24th March.

The closing date is scheduled for 21st April.
