Social Care Tender Services

Utilising years of hands-on experience writing and managing 100s of social care bids, we know what approaches can turn your bid into a winning submission.

Undoubtedly, the needs and expectations of local authorities from the social care sector are continually evolving. Ever-increasing demand pressures from ageing populations, characterised by a higher prevalence of long-term conditions and reliance on support, have been compounded by significant funding cuts and lack of workforce capacity. Against this background, developing sustainable models of support and submitting successful social care tenders has become more challenging.

Working on contracts from low-level domiciliary personal care to complex 24-hour packages, we work in partnership with our clients to dissect local care economies and contracting models, to submit compelling bids that best meet the outcomes of service users, commissioners, and the wider health system.

The Care Act 2014

The Care Act 2014 introduced many key changes for the sector which service providers need to be aware of.

The act replaces out-of-date and potentially confusing laws, placing focus on ensuring the person is at the centre of their support and that this is reflected in the statutory duties of the Council. The Care Act brought about greater focus on the wellbeing of an individual’s health emphasises outcome-led care and support, ensuring local authorities made sure people living in their areas:

    • receive services that prevent their care needs from becoming more serious or delay the impact of their needs
    • can get the information and advice they need to make good decisions about care and support
    • have a range of high quality, appropriate services to choose from
    • have more control over how their care and support is organised.

Indeed, as part of our knowledge and understanding of The Care Act 2014, its complications, and other potential issues surrounding the social care sector such as statutory obligations and local context, we are actively aware of all of these issues and any rapid or on-going changes that are happening within the social care sector.
