Notice Abstract

Provision of Extra Care at James Horrigan Court The Metropolitan Borough Council of Sefton (“Sefton Council”) requires Care and Support Services to be available for customers within Extra Care Housing Schemes. This procurement exercise is being run as an open tender to award a contract for the provision of a 24/7 Care and Support Service at James Horrigan Court, Dale Acre Drive, Netherton, Merseyside, L30 2RZ.
