Procurement of Supported Accommodation for Adults at Risk of Offending

The report seeks permission to tender a support service for people who have an offending history and risky behaviours.


The service will provide around 110 units of supported accommodation with a short period of move on support into independent tenancies.  Support would be provided for individual service users for 6 to 12 months, depending on need.  During this time they will be provided with a holistic support package to support their recovery and develop the skills and resilience to move on to a sustainable lifestyle in permanent accommodation.


The service will ensure that the needs of women are catered for, and couples where one or both meet its eligibility criteria.


The annual expenditure on this contract will be up to £445,000 per year initially.  This anticipates a reduction of around £35,000 from the current contract price.


In addition, there will be a 1% annual reduction built into the contract from May 2020.  This service will be commissioned as detailed in the report and in line with the delegations agreed by Cabinet in the Delegated Decisions for Housing Related Support Commissioning Strategy and Budget Plan 2016 – 2020.
