The Kent and Medway Transforming care partnership (TCP) works of behalf of Kent County Council, Medway Council and all 8 of Kent and Medway’s Clinical commissioning groups. The aim of the TCP is to enable more people to live fulfilled lives in their own homes in the community.

The TCP is seeking to develop and deliver bespoke and personalised care and support for people with learning disabilities and mental health issues, and/or autism who are aged 14 years and over, and who are currently in-patients, or at risk of admission to secure in-patient facilities

The TCP is seeking to commission services from this framework to deliver the least restrictive option for people, with a preference for people to maintain their own tenancy where this can safely meet needs and promote the achievement of a range of outcomes. Where this is not possible; for people to live in supported living, or specialised housing with care. Providers are expected to continually work with people to enable them to further step down to the least restrictive and most independent arrangements in the future.

Scope

Successful providers who join this Framework will be expected to contribute toward delivery of the TCP programme, ensuring the aims are sustainable beyond the end date of the national programme by;

1) timely and efficient design and delivery of personalised support and packages of care, by working with people’s ‘circles of support’, to those people who are stepping down from specialist/secure in-patient services;

2) offering more robust community placements to those at risk of admission to specialist hospitals;

3) working with community learning disability, mental health, autism and criminal justice services to identify people who may become at risk of hospital admission, or more robust community placements, thereby preventing service or carer breakdown, and sharing practice across the system.

The Framework Agreement will run for four years from November 2018 until October 2022. Although call off contracts made via the Framework will last for as long as the individual requires support therefore potentially in perpetuity.
