Approved List of Providers for the Provision of Supported Accommodation Services for 16 & 17 year old Young People

The introduction of the Children (Leaving Care) Act 2000 has led to an increased demand for Supported Accommodation Services. We are therefore seeking applications from organisations with a proven track record of working with Young People with diverse and complex needs who can offer this service.

The aim of the service is to provide good quality accommodation with flexible support, primarily in Cambridgeshire, to assist Young People towardsindependence. The service will be required to work in partnership with the Council to meet Young People’s assessed needs.

The Contract will run for a period of three years. The overall value of this contract is expected to be between £1.5 and £2 million although there are no guarantees of business. The approved list will be open and providers can apply to join throughout this period.

For Contracts beginning on the 01 September 2009 Providers are requested to apply within the tendering timescales provided. Applications made after this date will be assessed subject to available resources.

Requests for application packs must be received by 22 May 2009 by e-mailing

Requested Tender packs will be sent out from 24 April 2009 and must be returned completed by 4pm on 08 June 2009.
