• To focus on work with predominantly 13+, but with flexibility to engage with younger children if appropriate, signposting other services to community issues as needed

• To identify and liaise with other specialist services as needed to meet the needs of the young people, using the CAF as the principle means of assessment if appropriate

The contractor should be appropriately skilled and qualified. Indication of proven track record of delivering similar projects and CYP skills.

Deadline for document return is midday on Monday 20th February 2012.
