Description

Due to the expiry of an existing Framework Agreement, the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham is advertising to seek tenders from suitably experienced and qualified organisations for the provision of Short Break Activities for disabled children and young people.
The new Framework Agreement is expected to run for a period of three (3) years commencing 1st April 2022 and may be extended for a further one (1) year subject to funding and providers performance (at the sole discretion of the Council). The contracts will be awarded to multiple providers. This is an open framework that may be opened up periodically to meet the needs of service users and demand, at the sole discretion of the Council.
This tender will culminate in the creation of a list of suitably qualified and experienced providers for the provision of these services. All providers on the Framework will also be accessible to eligible families opting to receive a Direct Payment, securing them the peace of mind that a rigorously vetted list of providers exist and what they offer.

The Local Authority is seeking suitably qualified providers that can deliver short break services, in accordance with the Children and Families Act 2014, the Care Act 2014, and with the relevant registrations where required. The following are the Lot’s:

– Lot 1 Group Activities: School Holiday; After School/ Evening; Saturday and Sunday Provision
– Lot 2: Buddying and Befriending/ Outreach support
– Lot 3: Overnight Crisis breaks
– Lot 4: Services for children and young people with autism

Successful Tenderers will be awarded a Framework Agreement, (awarded to all organisations determined as able to deliver the Service) and may be expected to provide suitable Workers and Premises to facilitate the services in accordance with children and young people’s needs.
