Description of the contract

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (The Commission) started an Inquiry into the human rights of older people requiring and receiving care at home. This found that in relation to home care commissioning practices there was a general lack of awareness among many authorities on what is involved in complying with the Human Rights Act (HRA), including fulfilling their positive obligations to promote and protect human rights. One recommendation of the inquiry focussed specifically on the need to provide training and guidance for local authority elected members. However, the Commission believes that the rate of delivery of such training would be increased if practically focussed materials were produced. The Commission has therefore identified, as a priority, human rights training for local authority elected members. Our vision is that the training will be a practical tool for elected members to support them in meeting their Human Rights Act obligations in relation to older people and home care. The aim of this contract is to produce practical training materials to support local authority elected members in integrating their HRA obligations in to all relevant aspects of their role; including decision making, policy making, scrutiny and community leadership. It is expected that the training materials will build on and draw from previous EHRC publications, most importantly guidance on integrating human rights into local authority commissioning practices. Suppliers should note that there is no Expression of Interest stage and submissions are required by 13:00 Wednesday 14th August. We wish to contract by the middle of September. The specification can be requested by emailing (with subject line ‘EHRC147/2013 Elected Members Training’)
