The short break care offer for families in Richmond and Kingston has two elements: specialist or assessed support for children and young people with complex needs; and universal or unassessed services.
This procurement is for the universal or unassessed Short Breaks offer. That is to say that this procurement is for commissioned universal services that do not include overnight respite or specialist care.
To be eligible for the universal programme, children and young people must have a diagnosed disability, be aged between 4 to 17, and live in either Richmond or Kingston borough. Children who are eligible for specialist (assessed) short break care can additionally access the universal programme.
This procurement opportunity requires providers to have building based provision in either/or both Kingston and Richmond Boroughs. Please see the tender documentation for further details of all requirements.
