II.1.4) Short description

Warwickshire County Council (the Council) on behalf of Coventry and Warwickshire integrated Care Board (ICB) and Coventry City Council is seeking to commission a Collaboration where each provider has an individual contract with the Council, with one provider playing the co-ordination role of the partnership.

This service model is the preferred option for service delivery by all partners. However, we also would accept tender submissions from one provider who can demonstrate they are able to deliver the full service specification.

The approach of delivery should be community-first and outcome-focused. It is envisaged that "One Front Door" (Single Point of Entry) is offered to simplify access into the pool of services that are operating under a shared visual identity/brand, through a Collaborative Partnership model.

The service will be available all year round to individuals who live in Warwickshire or Coventry.
