The Council are commissioning Care in the home services including a Carers home and community respite service across Staffordshire for Carers who have been assessed as having support needs.

Respite Care and support enables Carers to take a break from their caring role and evidence suggests that this can help to achieve positive health, wellbeing and quality of life outcomes for Carers. Fewer Carers experienced mental health problems if they had taken a break since beginning their caring role.

The purpose of Care in the home and Carers home and community respite Services are to enable Service Users to remain in their own homes, living as independently as possible and to achieve and maintain their autonomy, independence, personal identity and assessed outcomes.

This Procurement is a ‘flexible Platform Agreement’ which will be commissioned under the Light Touch Regime (implemented through Regulations 74-77 of the Public Contract Regulations 2015). The Platform Agreement duration will be flexible and will be in place for a minimum of no less than 4 years from 1st September 2021 – 31st August 2025 with the option to extend by 3 x 12 months to 31st August 2028. No later than 1st September 2024, the Council will review its intentions for any future extension to the Platform Agreement and will notify Suppliers of any future extension period of the Platform Agreement.

Any further future extensions will be notified to the Suppliers no less than 6 months prior to the expiry of any future extension period. Should the Platform Agreement be extended following the minimum Platform Agreement period and should the total estimated Platform Agreement value range be exceeded then the documentation will be updated in line with Public Contract Regulations 2015.
