Bristol City Council would like to invite current and prospective providers to participate in a market engagement event in preparation for a forthcoming procurement opportunity to provide care and support services for individuals eligible for Adult social care support who have a learning disability and/or autism (‘LD&A’) including those with the most complex needs and those whose behaviour can lead to contact with the criminal justice system. The overarching aim of this project is to transform our local care market and have a really positive impact on life outcomes for our citizens. Our ambition is that people with LD&A in Bristol can:  enjoy independence,  live as close to home as possible in communities where they feel valued,  have choice around how they spend their time, and  contribute to the local neighbourhood. Currently we place too many people with LD&A in distant, out-of-area accommodation far from their home communities. The local market is not currently providing a diverse, sustainable and innovative range of care options and accommodation to meet local needs. The Council’s model of care needs to be financially sustainable and be delivered within the resources available. We are looking for longer term partners who can work with us on this agenda and support us to develop innovative models that deliver the right care in the most cost-effective way. In order to achieve this the Council recognises the need to attract and retain excellent providers in the City that are appropriately rewarded in order to build sustainable businesses and provide a diverse range of care of an excellent standard. We are looking to build long term partnerships with providers who put prevention, reablement and recovery at the heart of what they do and are committed to ensuring people have choice and control over the services they receive with just enough support to live independent lives. We are also committed to working in close partnership with people who use these services and their families in developing new models of care and support and we would expect our provider market to support this approach of partnership, cooperation and innovation.
