FGC tender opportunity in Stoke on Trent
Stoke on Trent City Council is tendering for the provision of Family Group Conferences. Tenders are invited from interested parties to deliver a Family Group Conference Service to children resident in the Stoke-on-Trent Local Authority Area and their families in order to maximise potential for them to remain living within their family or connected people where it is safe and appropriate to do so. The Local Authority is also exploring options for training local authority staff to coordinate Family Group Conferences by March 2019 and the provider will be expected to facilitate shadowing and mentoring opportunities. It is expected that the Service Provider is a member of the Family Group Conference network and that the Provider will seek accreditation from the Family Rights Group for the local service provision.
Expected start date for the contract will be 1 April 2017 and is for a period of three years with the option to extend by one further period of one year up to a maximum of 4 years. The estimated value for the requirement is £50,000 per annum. This will be a single provider framework agreement to provide Family Group Conference Services as and when required.
Given the need for the tender to be managed and coordinated in a robust manner and to ensure that all of the deliverables are met in accordance with the specification, the City Council feels this is best achieved through the appointment of a single provider, hence this tender has not been divided into lots and is only available for Stoke-on-Trent City Council to use.
