West Berkshire Council invites expressions of interest from suitably qualified and experienced CQC registered organisations to deliver supported living and floating support services at a number of established services in Newbury, Thatcham, Hermitage and Theale.

There are two lots being advertised. Providers may express an interest in one lot only.

The successful organisations will deliver low-high intensity non-accommodation based care and housing related support meeting individually assessed needs of the people receiving this service.

Each lot will require a provider who has experience of providing support to people who have complex health needs and exhibit challenging behaviours. Staff will require the skill and experience of working with this user group to enable them to manage behavioural difficulties.
