South Lanarkshire Council is seeking suppliers that can provide Enhanced Aftercare, for care experienced young people. The Council has identified that a number of young people who wish to leave fostering or residential care are not able to live independently due to the lack of a targeted bespoke services which provide community based supported accommodation, with a high level of support and 24 hours, 7 days per week (24/7) out of hours response. 

The proposed service will include two main elements: 

  1. 24/7 Intensive Support - As part of the Council's commitment to develop a wider range of options for young people who choose to leave care, the Council is looking to commission a model of high level support with accommodation for 16 to 21 year olds (individual self-contained rooms and communal areas including shared bathrooms and/or 24/7 staff shared houses) with support staff available 24/7. This could be in one accommodation, or a maximum of 2 locations, accessible by public transport and having local amenities within walking distance. 
  2. Emergency Accommodation - The service will also have capacity to provide safe emergency accommodation and support that some young people will require as an emergency/short term alternative until a solution to the crisis is found. The model needs to take account that young people's needs for accommodation and support can change on a daily basis and the service can respond to emergency placements. This service can only be used if there is a vacancy in the 10 places. 
The Council requires potential bidders to deliver both housing and support solutions and the services need to be available across South Lanarkshire geographical localities. 

South Lanarkshire Council in partnership with the Supplier Development Programme is hosting a webinar to provide suppliers with more detail about the upcoming opportunity. One of SDP's expert trainers will be in attendance to show suppliers how to find and access the tender documents.
