Thurrock Council is seeking to develop a framework of providers to deliver day and residential educational support placements to children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) up to the age of 25 years old.
Our vision is in securing SEND day and residential placements provision in and outside of Thurrock, ideally as close to the homes of Thurrock’s children and young people as possible to allow them to remain within their local communities.
Our aim is to support positive family relationships, reduce family travel costs to provision often located a long distance away from a child or young person’s home and family in Thurrock and reduce expensive out of borough care.
Providers should be able to offer day and/or residential educational placements with a range of specialist support and service responses.
Appointed providers will deliver innovative person-centred approaches and models of care to suit the individual needs of each child and young person and often, their complex needs and disabilities. We are also interested in the social value that providers may offer Thurrock, our children, young people and their families.
Two market engagement events are being hosted to enable providers to gain an understanding of the borough, the requirements for this service and to have a dialogue with commissioners about service development.
Further information on the events, including how to register attendance, is available on Eventbrite – links are provided within this notice.
1. Virtual Event on Monday 31st October 2022 at 10.30am.
2. In-Person Event on Monday 14th November 2022 at 10.00am.
