Long Term Supported Accommodation Provider Consultation – Friday 21 August 2015
The Council is inviting both Care and Support providers and Landlords with an interst in Long Term Supported Accommodation to attend an information sharing event to discuss future commissioning.
The Council recognises that it commissions a range of services that offer both accommodation and support. These services establish and maintain the independence of those who use them. These “Long Term Supported Accommodation Services” (LTSA) operate to many different models, The Council wishes to develop a consistent model of service across all LTSA. This will include current services such as:
- Sheltered Housing
- Extracare Housing
- Other Older People’s provision
- Provisions for Adults with Learning Disabilities
- Provisions for Adults with Mental Health needs
- Provisions for Adults with Physical Disabilities
This event will be an opportunity for Providers to learn about the proposed model, discuss how this can work in practice and create solutions for any concerns raised. Feedback from the event will be used to finalise the model after consultation with service users.
This initial consultation will take part in two strands. Landlords are being invited to take part in the morning session and Care and Support Providers in the afternoon. If you provide both functions you are welcome to attend both sessions but you will need to apply individually to each session.
The Council want as many provider representatives as possible to attend the session, should there be an over subscription to the event places will be limited to one person per provider, you will be informed of any changes made to bookings.

Preferred Provider Framework for Domiciliary Care
In 2014 Telford & Wrekin put a Preferred Provider Framework (the Framework) in place to support all purchasing of domiciliary care made from 1 October 2015. All new care purchasing from this date is offered to providers who are on our Framework. Work is also underway to transfer current care purchasing onto the Framework.
