Liverpool City Council has identified a need for two children’s homes located in Liverpool that will focus on addressing current presenting need of a complex group of young people aged 11-16. Analysis of this group has identified that good outcomes planning with young people will assist in them being effectively supported to be able to move on and return to their families, step down into foster care, or move into independent living.
This transition, preparation and moving on approach is intended to address the increasing demand that cannot be met by existing services and will focus upon planning from the beginning of the placement, an exit strategy for each child so that there is a clear plan for the future, and young people are not left in residential placements unnecessarily. The Authority is seeking a provider to deliver this service on their behalf which incorporates the use of two properties in Liverpool.
The Contract will be for an initial period of three years with the option for the Authority to extend, at its absolute discretion, for a further period of up to seven years (either in a single extension or via multiple extension periods).
