CLOSING DATE: 2020-07-10
TENDER INFORMATION: Anti-Social Behaviour and Hate Crime Support Service Consultation with Providers Overview and Background Stoke-on-Trent City Council are required under the Pubic Contracts Regulations to test the market for the provision of services on a regular, usually a four-year basis. Previous contracts in this area have seen the following three services awarded and operating separately, but following consideration of how to move the services forward the Community Safety Partnership (which sits within the City Council) consider that the best way to operate would be to provide a single streamlined service offer. Therefore, we are asking you as the market experts about your views on how this could operate, and any issues that you feel we need to consider before going out to tender for a single service. The new service will contain the following elements: a) Anti-Social Behaviour Victim Service Provide expert advice on anti-social behaviour, advocating on the victim’s behalf and, ensuring that consideration has been given to use of all appropriate tools and powers available. Provide emotional and practical support in order to build resilience and help victims of anti-social behaviour move forward with their lives. Represent victims of anti-social behaviour in the Community Trigger process. Raise awareness of anti-social behaviour, how to report it and the remedies available. b) Mediation Service Provide an impartial mediation between both (or multiple) parties, who may be neighbours, near neighbours, or community members in cases of anti-social behaviour or neighbour disputes. c) Hate Crime Service Provide expert advice on hate crime, advocating on the victim’s behalf and, ensuring that consideration has been given to use of all appropriate tools and powers available. Provide emotional and practical support in order to build resilience and help victims of hate crime move forward with their lives. Develop and maintain an up-to-date list of third-party reporting centres for hate crime. Raise awareness of hate crime, how to report it and the remedies available. Scope Only residents of Stoke-on-Trent may access the service. Other exclusions will apply, e.g. discrimination cases, cases of anti-social behaviour where the issues concern other statutory matters such as street parking or environmental pollution. Questions 1. What benefits do you feel a single integrated service would be able to offer to service users? 2. As a member of the provider market for this service, do you feel it is feasible for a single provider to provide all three elements within a single service? 3. Are then any drawbacks with a single service you feel need to be considered when writing the specification? We would be pleased to hear your views on the above questions. Please return your responses to email@example.com by 12:00pm on Friday 10 July 2020. Note: This is not the tender opportunity, it is a consultation with providers.
