Emergency Care and Support Placements – Market Engagement – 22 July 2021
Cornwall Council is conducting soft market engagement activities to gain an understanding of the potential level of interest for the provision of emergency care and support placements for children and young people with complex needs.
Cornwall Council (the Council) is conducting soft market engagement activities to gain an understanding of the potential level of interest for the provision of emergency care and support placements for children and young people with complex needs.
The Council are looking for care and placement providers (which might include accommodation) who can meet the complex needs of a small number (approximately 8-10 per year) of Cornish children and young people and would like to develop a framework of specialist providers from the South West who will be able to meet this need.
The soft market test and market engagement event are an information gathering exercise and it is intended that any responses will be used by the Council to develop a business proposal. Any such proposal would be subject to the development and approval of a business case, and, as such, this exercise implies no commercial commitment and is not a formal tender document. Participation in this soft market test will not prejudice providers participating in any future procurement for the services in this document or any other services.
If you are interested in this area of service provision and helping with the Council’s soft market test you are invited to:
• Register on the Council’s Due-North system https://www.supplyingthesouthwest.org.uk and express an interest in this project.
• Complete the “Information Required” section of the soft market test document and return it to the Council using the Due North system by the 12 noon on the 15th July 2021.
• Complete the “Information Required” section of the market engagement event by the 12 noon on the 15th July 2021 to confirm your attendance at the Council’s market engagement event to be held on Microsoft teams on Thursday 22nd July 2021 between 3pm and 5pm.
