Vulnerable Adults Preventative Service

Nottingham City Council

Nottingham City Council is looking to secure an experienced support provider to deliver a 12 month pilot service. The purpose of the service will be to connect vulnerable citizens in the City of Nottingham to each other and their communities in order to sustain and maintain their health, independence and well-being. It is expected to respond to the support needs of vulnerable citizens who are experiencing acute loneliness and social isolation which is impacting significantly on their wellbeing and quality of life, with demonstrable negative health effects. It is anticipated that most citizens entering in to this service will be people who have some level of support need, however with effective support these needs can be met within their home and or community.

The service will be expected to deliver the following outcomes:

  • To promote the independence of vulnerable citizens in their own homes
  • To provide support to citizens with long term conditions or disability (ensuring that they are accessing the appropriate clinical support and are able to follow instructions in relation to self-medication).
  • To reduce the potential of future demand on social care services
  • To reduce future demand on primary and secondary health care services
  • To maximise uptake of other support services and links to the local community.

The duration will be for 1 year, with a possible extension of 1 year at the Council’s discretion.

Annual contract value £140,000. Contract to commence 1st June 2017

Deadline: 03/04/2017
