Derby City Council (the Commissioner) is undertaking this procurement process on behalf of D2N2 to establish a flexible Framework for the supply of Supported Accommodation for Young People.

Overview of Requirement

The Framework will run alongside four block contracts separately commissioned by each Local Authority within D2N2. This Framework will be used to commission placements when a block contract is unable to meet a Young Person's specific requirements or has reached full capacity.

Supported accommodation placements will improve Young Person's skills in the following areas:

• Sustaining a tenancy

• Managing a budget

• Engaging in the local community

• Understanding how to access further support

• Gaining independence skills

The Framework will provide high quality, good value, supported accommodation for D2N2's Young People in care and care leavers. The Framework will require the Contracting Authority and the Provider to work in together to ensure supported accommodation is available when required and meets each Young Person's individual needs.

The key objectives of this Service shall be to:

• Provide Young People with accommodation and support at the point of need.

• Provide supported accommodation where Young People feel safe, are protected from harm and safeguarding risks, and understand the consequences of risk-taking behaviour.

• Prepare Young People for sustainable independence through the provision of individually tailored support in high quality accommodation.

• Provide well trained Support Workers who will form strong, positive relationships with Young People to support them on their journey towards independence.

• Provide stable and consistent accommodation and support to prevent frequent placement moves and the unplanned departure of Young People from their placement.

• Improve value for money by reducing the Contracting Authority's reliance on high-cost individual placements.

• Achieve positive outcomes for Young People. Please see Section 2.4 of this specification for further details.

Bidders MUST already have the Accommodation requirements in place at the time of submitting their Bid.

The service and accommodation requirements are further detailed further in Part 3 Specification of the ITT documents.


The following Contracting Authorities will be able to call-off from the Framework:

Derby City, Derbyshire County, Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire County
