Invitation to tender




Expressions of interest are invited from voluntary and private
sector providers to deliver a mentoring service to 18-20 year old
offenders as part of the new “Intensive Control and Change
Programme” (ICCP) initiated by the National Probation
Directorate.  Northumbria is one of several areas selected to pilot
ICCP with a target start-date of May this year.

ICCP will aim to encourage courts to divert young offenders in
the target group from short periods in custody, where this is
considered appropriate in terms of risk, by offering an intensive
package of supervision (enhanced by electronic monitoring), unpaid
work on behalf of local communities and a range of rehabilitative
interventions including mentoring. ICCP in Northumbria will work
with around 120 young people per year across a large urban and
rural geographical area.  Funding is guaranteed for at least two

Those expressing an interest in bidding for the mentoring
element of ICCP will be invited to a briefing meeting (date to be
announced) in Newcastle Upon Tyne and/or will be provided with a
full tender pack. Expressions of interest and requests for any
further information should be addressed, in writing, to David
Gardiner, Director of Operations, National Probation Service
(Northumbria), Lifton House, Eslington Road, Jesmond, Newcastle
Upon Tyne NE2 4SP. Closing date for expressions of interest is 3rd
March 2003
