The providers who are successful in their application form will be placed on the Preferred Provider List for the client groups they believe they are capable of providing. These are listed in the documentation.
The Preferred List commenced on the 6th February 2014. The list opens every six months and is subject to the Council approval process. The Preferred List will be in place for 3 years until 2017. If you are already on the list, you do not need to re-apply.

The terms and conditions are attached- you are required to sign up to the conditions as part of the application process.
There are 6 specifications to inform the applicants of the overarching requirements of each client group. There are also specifications for both residential care and supported living to assist the applicant in understanding and responding to the Council’s requirements.
