Social work and related services. Other community, social and personal services. Telford & Wrekin Council will shortly be inviting suitably qualified and experienced providers to tender for the provision of an information and advice service for Children and Adult Carers within the Borough. The purpose of this Prior Information Notice (┐PIN┐) is to inform potential providers and stakeholders of the upcoming tender and of the Council┐s intention to hold a workshop on 30 September 2014 to share and collate ideas to inform the shaping of services for carers resident in Telford & Wrekin. This document is not a Contract Notice, Pre-Qualification Questionnaire, or an Invitation to Tender, but rather a Prior Information Notice. Carers have been identified as a priority for the local Health and Wellbeing Board, with the Council and Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) committed to developing services which reflect the needs of the local community. Our multi┐agency strategies for carers and young carers set out our shared ambitions for carers in Telford & Wrekin and we are keen to ensure that services can deliver on these ambitions. Within the Care Act 2014, carers will be recognised in law in the same way as those that they care for. It is therefore important to have a locally focused service where carers of any age can seek information, advice and support which enhances their wellbeing and quality of life. Please note that this will be a phased-process of engagement to assist the Council, working co-operatively with prospective providers to assess options and to decide on the best course of action. Initial discussions will lead to a formal tendering process which would be openly advertised on the Delta esourcing website from October 2014 with services commencing 1 April 2015.If you are a prospective provider or stakeholder interested in taking part in discussions with the Council to work together with residents, partners and other local organisations to collectively deliver the best we can for our carers then please contact for Krystyna Flynn at to book yourself on the workshop. For more information about carer service┐s in general please contact Jill Tiernan (Commissioner) on 01952 388918 or Rachael Foster (Commissioner) on 01952 380810.
