Description

Derbyshire Adult Care is inviting tenders to provide a volunteer befriending service for all adults. This service will provide flexible, person centred befriending support to meet the individual needs of a wide range of clients as practicable and will link them into support networks and activities. Tenders are invited from voluntary and independent sector providers with extensive experience in the provision of similar services.

The Volunteer Befriending Service will deliver befriending support to social isolated adults in the Bolsover and South Derbyshire districts of Derbyshire. A range of befriending support will be provided including, but not limited to, one to one home visits, buddying support, telephone befriending and supported friendships. The service will seek to support clients over time to develop their own social networks and move on from the service to access appropriate local activities and be engaged with their local community.

The tender is split into the following two lots: –

Lot 1 – Bolsover
Lot 2 – South Derbyshire

Potential providers are invited to tender for one or both lots.

Providers will be selected on the basis of experience, capability and quality. Short listed applicants will be required to attend an interview with the selection panel, which will be held during February 2013. Confirmation of the interview date will be forwarded to shortlisted applicants as soon as possible.

E-format tender documentation available from contact.
