Rotherham Borough Council are seeking suitably experienced organisations to tender for the provision of a Peer Mentoring and Service User Support Service for Rotherham in relation to supporting people with drug and alcohol misuse on the recovery journey.
In response to the government’s 2010 Drug Strategy, Rotherham’s ambition is to ensure that that every individual in treatment is given the opportunity to leave addiction behind.
The NTA Recovery Strategy lists several key areas that will help individuals on the recovery journey:
– Improvement in mental and physical health
– The ability to access suitable accommodation
– Sustained employment
– A reduction in crime and re-offending
– Freedom from dependence on drugs and alcohol
– Improving relationships with family members, partners and friends
It is the intention that this service provision will help build on existing work done in these areas by the treatment services and provide the knowledge and on-going support to individuals to complete and sustain their recovery journey.
Tenders for this service provision are to be given flexibility in how they achieve the required contract outcomes, with a maximum contract ceiling of £66,000 per annum. The contract will be for two consecutive years with the option of two one year extensions, totalling 4 years
The objective of this service is
– to provide a combined Alcohol and Drug Peer Mentoring provision, accessible Rotherham wide providing support to help Alcohol and Drug service users with their recovery journey
– to facilitate and provide support for Service User Involvement for Rotherham Alcohol and Drug Treatment Services and to promote awareness and engagement within local communities
It is expected that self-governing peer lead recovery groups will be established easy accessible, community based throughout the Rotherham area.
Suitable accredited training and support for peer mentors will be essential in developing and sustaining ‘Recovering Communities’ in the key areas of Rotherham
