II.2.4) Description of the procurement
Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council wishes to commission a supported living service for up to 3 people in a newly refurbished property in the Pontardawe area where the support for this new service will involve delivering a customised package of care support to individuals in line with their assessed needs.
The Council believes at this time that the accommodation will become a longer term scheme which will include elements of recovery and progression for people with mental health needs and may be used as a base for recovery and progression for people with mental health needs in the borough. The 3 service users initially identified for the service will need ongoing recovery support to help them to build on their strengths and progress to an agreed level of independence. There are no current plans for the provision of housing related support funded through the supporting people programme grant (SPPG), although it is recognised however that current or subsequent service users may require this support at some future time, so it is felt that tenderers should be familiar with the delivery of housing related support and also be familiar with progressing people towards greater independence. The Council reserves the right to include Housing related Support as part of the delivery of the service at any future time.
For information — Swansea Bay University Health Board (SBUHB) are joint commissioners to the service as service users are jointly funded.
The Registered Social Landlord (RSL) for the property will be first choice housing and the provider will be required to maintain a management agreement with First Choice for the duration of the contract.
As this is a new service, there will be no TUPE requirements and the successful tenderer will therefore be required to either recruit new Staff or to redeploy existing staff to the service to ensure a fully functional service from day one of the contract.
The contract is scheduled to commence from 1.4.2020 subject to a suitable property being available for a period of 3 years with the option to extend by a period or periods of up to a further 24 months.
II.2.13) Information about European Union funds
