Complex Needs DPS
Main contract details
Cheshire East Council has a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for procurement of care and support services for individuals eligible for Adult and Children’s social care support, including those individuals in transition to adulthood (16+) who have a learning disability, physical disability and/or mental health needs. Importantly, providers wishing to join the DPS must be able to deliver care packages within the Borough of Cheshire East.
The DPS will also support the key priorities of the Transforming Care Programme which is underpinned by the principles set out in ‘Building the Right Support’ a national plan to develop community services and reduce the number of inpatient facilities for people with a learning disability and/or autism who display behaviour that challenges - including those with a mental health condition. The service model includes all people of all ages and those with autism (including Asperger syndrome) who do not also have a learning disability (as well as those who have both a learning disability and autism), and includes those people with a learning disability and/or autism whose behaviour can lead to contact with the criminal justice system.
