Essex County Council (the Council) is conducting a refresh of the Day Opportunities framework under the light touch regime to secure providers to deliver support for adults with disabilities/physical or sensory impairments and older people as further described in the tender documents. This service is designed to support adults through a range of purposeful activities outside their own home and seeks to increase their independence and confidence within their own community, as well as enabling a break for unpaid carers. The Day Opportunities service in Essex will support the Council in achieving its strategic aims in relation to the cohort of adult these services are gears towards. Providers are required to embed the Council's "Good Lives Approach", embracing the Care Act principles of "Prevent, Reduce, Delay" and changes the dependency culture of assessing for services to an approach building upon an Adult's assets and the support networks they have in their local communities.
