Description of the goods or services required
MOPAC is commissioning services for a two and a half year pilot of Community Sentence Treatment Requirements (CSTRs) in London. The pilot will focus on providing specialist mental health court assessments and primary care for female offenders in six South London boroughs as part of their enforceable community sentences. The supplier will be required to work as part of a multi-agency approach to these individuals to meet their sometimes complex needs, and ensure that they get the best available treatment.
The service will provide clinical assessment and therapeutic treatment to support primary mental health treatment requirements (MHTRs), as part of the London testing of the national Community Sentence Treatment Requirement (CSTR) Programme.
The national programme is being tested with female offenders resident in six boroughs in South West London, and will be based out of the Beth Centre in Lambeth. The intended overarching impact of the programme is to ensure that eligible resident women receive the most appropriate sentence for their individual needs.
As well as providing assessments and primary mental healthcare for MHTRs, there will be a requirement for significant partnership working with probation and substance misuse services, to sequence and support combined orders.
