Description

Derby City Council (DCC) has secured funding from the Southern Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group to provide training for informal carers.

Within Derby City there are over 25,000 people who are carers (Census 2011). However only 2,000 of these people have registered for support with care support services in the city.

DCC is therefore seeking to engage with an organisation to provide a package of training to informal carers in Derby City to support them in their caring role.

The successful tenderer will:

• Develop and deliver training to informal carers registered with a Derby City GP practice, who have been identified as needing training and support through a range of partner organisations;

• Provide training in the community (Derby) at times and locations that are accessible for carers, providing transport where required;

• Provide support for the cared for (if this is required) to enable the carer to attend the training (this support must be provided by a care organisation who are registered with CQC, who can meet the needs of the cared for)

• Provide management information on the outcomes and outputs to maximise effectiveness of the training

Tenderers should possess a recent record of success in providing this type of training or similar, including previous delivery of a minimum of 3 training courses to a group of carers or similar.

The Contract period is 12 months from 1st April 2014 to 31st March 2015.
