Description of the contract

Arun Wellbeing is looking to commission sustainable activities that support behaviour change in those with increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease and cancer, as part of the countywide Prevention and Wellbeing Programme. These activities will be evaluated as part of the wellbeing programme. Arun Wellbeing works to tackle the wider determinants of health; tackling factors which affect health and wellbeing and health inequalities. The Prevention and Wellbeing Programme has been commissioned by the Department of Public Health at West Sussex County Council, to be delivered by each of the district and borough councils in West Sussex. The Prevention and Wellbeing Programme in each local authority is designed to address health inequalities and support lifestyle changes through the coordination and commissioning of local services that meet the locally recognised health and wellbeing priorities. A countywide coordinated approach to the programme is being delivered through a network of West Sussex wellbeing programmes, with each district and borough council working to a common framework for delivery of the objectives outlined above. The Wellbeing programme in each District and Borough has been tailored to reflect local demographics, need and capacity, but shares the common purpose of providing a high profile centre of local prevention and wellbeing activity, increasing the ease of access to services needed by the local population. Organisations are invited to bid for the delivery of the Wellbeing Coaches project. The contract will start from 1st October 2013, initially until 31st March 2014, and subject to public health funding and satisfactory delivery evidenced through monitoring and evaluation with clear evidence supplied, (carried out quarterly) may be extended for two times one year up to 31st March 2016. Unsatisfactory outcomes and evidence would result in the project being terminated prior to that with an agreed notice period.
