Description of the contract

Camden Council is seeking applications from a range of community organisations to deliver personalised services as part of our Specialist Homecare Provider List (SHPL). Camden is creating a Specialist Homecare Provider List to complement its Generic Homecare Framework. We are looking to work with a number of speciality niche providers able to deliver care and support to customers whose needs are complex or require specific specialist input. The SHPL will enable delivery of services using the following two service approaches: • Support with daily activities: This approach involves customers actively working with care workers to achieve the outcomes set out in their Individual Service Plan (ISP). • Reablement: This approach or philosophy helps people to progressively and increasingly do things for themselves, rather than having things done for them. This is so that a greater level of independence can be achieved and long term care input reduced. This approach involves customers actively working with care workers to achieve the outcomes set out in their Enablement Plan (EP). The SHPL will also enable support to people with the following two categories of need: a) Complex or challenging needs. This category may cover: • Behaviours that challenge: such as persistent non-engagement or complex family dynamics. • Complex communication: such as people who use Makaton or have sensory impairment. • Complex cognitive or physical difficulties (or both): such as people with a learning disability, brain injury or complex needs relating to dementia. b) Specialist cultural needs: This category relates to: • Packages of care that are complex or challenging, but where the customer has additional specific cultural support needs that cannot be met by providers on the Generic Homecare Framework. It is intended that up to 20 providers per category who are able to provide high quality home care and reablement support services will be invited onto the List. The application process will be a one stage process. Interested organisations must submit applications and give details of the type and costs of the services which will be provided to people whose needs are complex or require specific specialist input . There will be no guarantee of work to any organisation on this list.
