We wish to redesign and commission some of our existing services to create a new integrated 0-19 years’ Service for Children, Young People & Families in Torbay.

The current services included in this plan are:

  • Health Visiting;
  • School Nursing;
  • National Child Measurement Programme;
  • Children’s Centres;
  • Early Help Co-ordination;
  • Team Around the Family Co-ordination;
  • Family Intervention Team;
  • Young People’s Substance Misuse Service;
  • Advocacy and Independent Visitors Service;
  • Missing and Return Home Interview Service.

We want to explore a model that delivers these services altogether through ‘Family Hubs’. The Authority wants Family Hubs to deliver holistic, early intervention services to Children, Young People and Families. We believe that introducing these Hubs is a clear next step to:

  • Improving co-ordination of services and support;
  • Improving the experience for people using services;
  • Ensuring outcomes improve for children and young people.

Our redesign is informed by Children, Young People and Families, developments around the country and consultation with its local stakeholders. The process began with a Public Health Nursing and Children’s Centre consultation in 2015/16 and in Autumn 2017 we agreed to recommission a new service for Children, Young People and Families. Stakeholder engagement events and an online consultation were held in late 2017.

The estimated budget for this contract could be in the region of £18.45m for the 5 year duration from April 2019.

Further details can be found in our Commissioning Plan and FAQ documents.

Engagement Events

We want to engage with existing and potential providers to share our vision for Torbay and how and when we want to put it into action.  These sessions will provide potential suppliers the opportunity to find out more about the needs in Torbay, what we are looking for locally and how the procurement process will help deliver this innovation. There will be opportunities to ask questions and tell us what you see as the challenges and opportunities of delivering this service in Torbay.

Proposed dates for events are:

  • Friday 9 February 2018 10am to 1pm, The Madison Suite @ TLH Carlton Hotel
  • Thursday 22 February 2018 10am to 1pm, The Madison Suite @ TLH Carlton Hotel
  • Wednesday 14 March 2018 10am to 1pm, Warwick Ballroom @ TLH Victoria Hotel

The events will each have a different focus, so attendance at all three events would be beneficial for both us and existing/potential providers.

To register your place at these events please contact procurement.team@torbay.gov.uk with the details of all attendees from your organisation.

Please note that interested parties must register their attendance by 5pm on Thursday 8 February 2018.
