II.2.3) Place of performance
II.2.4) Description of the procurement
We are looking for a dynamic, innovative and pro-active organisation(s) with an extensive knowledge of the vulnerabilities and complexities of children and families within the field of substance misuse, both generally and in Rochdale and with a proven track record of delivery of specialist services. Prevention and early intervention is a key priority. The service is expected to utilise strengthening emotional and social resilience of our young people as the enabler to address substance misuse. The service will be expected to consider the family unit in its widest sense and to work holistically with all relevant parties and other agencies to coordinate packages of care that best meet those needs but that also recognise strengths and assets.
The core aim of this service is to deliver a range of interventions to educate and raise awareness of substance misuse (Tier 1), intervene early to divert people away from misusing substances (Tier 2) and where misuse of substances is more deeply entrenched, to provide a range of specialist, evidence based treatment interventions (Tier 3) to enable individuals and their families to recover and sustain a life free from dependency.
The service contract is from 1.4.2020 until 31.3.2022 with an option to extend annually until 31.3.2025.
For any further information, please refer to the service specification and tender documentation.
