Description

Cornwall Council (the Council) is conducting this soft market engagement to gain an understanding of the potential level of interest for the provision of a live-in care and support service in Cornwall.

As a minimum the Council is looking for a provider(s) who will work with them to deliver a quality live in care and support service that:

– have experience of delivering a twenty-four (24) hour live-in care and support service (or similar) as described in the soft market engagement document,

– are registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to provide home care services,

– directly employ carers that have been appropriately trained and hold an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS),

– will pay all staff employed in providing the service the Real Living Wage as defined by the Living Wage Foundation https://www.livingwage.org.uk. regardless of role and qualifications.

The soft market engagement is an information gathering exercise and it is intended that any responses to this soft market engagement 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 engagement 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 engagement you are invited to register on the Council’s Due-North system https://www.supplyingthesouthwest.org.uk and express an interest in this project. Thereafter you are invited to complete the “Information Required” section of the soft market engagement document and return it to the Council via the Due North system by the 22nd June 2021.
