Description of the contract

The South Essex groupings of Local Authorities are inviting interested parties to tender for the provision of services for single homeless people across nine local authority areas in the sub-region. Due to the geographical scale of the subregional grouping locations have been grouped into Lot Areas: Southend Basildon Chelmsford Castle Point Brentwood Harlow Rochford Thurrock Epping Forest Total grant funding of £386,000 is available to fund services across the sub-regional area; allocated equally to the 3 Lot Areas at £128,666. Tenderers have the opportunity to bid to provide services in 1, 2 or all 3 of the Lot Areas. There is an expectation that this funding will be used to roll out initiatives aligned to “No Second Night Out” across the South Essex region. There are two key areas that this service must cover: 1. Outreach and intensive support services Development of outreach services to connect with street homeless people, and address their needs by helping them access support and accommodation. 2. Accessing private rented accommodation and sustaining tenancies Addressing the barriers to accessing suitable accommodation; supporting tenants and landlords to help sustain tenancies; preventing the risk of future homelessness. The Contract will commence on the 1st September 2014; tenderers are required to demonstrate how they will use the allocated grant funding to provide services for 2-3 years, and provide a sustainability plan to maintain these services, once grant funding has ceased.
