To seek approval for the procurement of a new
contract for the provision of the Adult Carer Service and Young
Carers support and advice to commence 1 July 2022.
To approve an open procurement procedure
combining the Adult Carers and Young Carers support service into
one contractual mechanism.
There are currently eight contractual
arrangements supporting Young Carers and Adult Carers across North
Yorkshire. It is being proposed to combine the Adult carers and
Young Carers contract into one contractual mechanism to ensure a
consistent approach to carers support. This could be delivered in
the form of a single provider/consortia operating in all areas of
North Yorkshire or for different providers/consortia delivering on
a locality footprint.
The establishment of an in-house service that
would be required across the county would be significant and
require large-scale recruitment for NYCC to be able to provide a
service of similar scale and quality. This would also have a
significant financial impacts and could result in poorer value for
Continuing with the existing separate contracting arrangements for adults and childrens carers services would make it more difficult to achieve the outcome of a consistent approach to carers support across the age ranges.
