Decision details

22/00051 - Bespoke Support Service

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Public Health

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Reason for the decision:

The current Positive Behavioural Support Framework for bespoke service development and delivery for people with complex needs, including those with learning disabilities and autistic people is due to end on 30 October 2022.


There are a significant number of individuals who are currently referred to or waiting for a referral for placement through the Positive Behavioural Support Service. Therefore, there is a requirement for a new 4 year open framework, with a potential of increasing the number of providers available.


Experience of challenges within the current Care and Support in the Home market providing support for those with the most individual needs, shows the need to expand access to this framework for bespoke services across all areas of Adult Social Care to potentially include people with Dementia.



As Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Public Health, I

a)    APPROVE: The procurement for a new Bespoke Support Service for people with complex needs; and

b)    DELEGATE authority to the Corporate Director, Adult Social Care and Health to take relevant actions and consult with the Corporate Director of Children, Young People and Education, as required to facilitate procurement activity with regard to the Bespoke Support Service.
