Expressions of interest to participate in Children’s Social Care Supervised Contact provider engagement

Date: Afternoon of Monday 4th March and Monday 11th March 2019 at Bernard Weatherill House, Mint Walk, Croydon, CR0 1EA

The London Borough of Croydon is inviting suitably qualified providers to participate in discussions with commissioners on proposals for commissioning supervised contact in Croydon.

The Council has a statutory duty to promote contact between children and young people looked after by the Local Authority and their families, unless it is not practicable or consistent with the child’s welfare. There is also a duty to promote contact for children in need who are not living with their family, if this is in the interests of their welfare. Contact may be supervised, either at a designated contact centre provided for this purpose or in the community, as appropriate for each individual child and family.

We would like to explore with existing and prospective providers our options for future commissioning of this service in Croydon, including:

  • The current position in Croydon
  • Service aims and requirements
  • Possible service delivery models
  • Indicative procurement timetable

Discussions will inform the development and procurement of the service in 2019.

Please note: This market engagement activity does not constitute a call for competition to procure any services, supplies or works for the Council and the Council is not bound to accept any proposals offered.

The Council is not liable for any costs, fees or expenses incurred by any party participating in this event. Any procurement of any services, supplies or works by the Council in due course will be carried out strictly in accordance with the provisions in the UK and EU Procurement Regulations.

To register your attendance at this event please email with the name of your company and the name and role of the delegate you wish to attend. Please indicate your availability on 4th and 11th March (afternoon). The deadline for registering your interest is 5pm on Monday 25th February 2019.
