II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

An extensive review has been undertaken and the CYPLG are keen to develop a service which is able to support young people experiencing a range of challenges to develop resilience and positive emotional well-being through a service which is flexible, integrated and cohesive and which provides equity of access for young people across the Scottish Borders aged 12 to 18 years. The CYPLG are keen to explore support options for a range of groups; Young Carers, substance misuse, LGBT and equalities.

We are now keen to commission this service and to engage with potential service providers in discussions about how this service specification can be turned into a reality.

It is an exciting opportunity to bring an innovative approach to the Borders, 1 which would provide time limited 1 to 1 and group support with a range of evidence based interventions for service users. The service would also provide consultation, support and capacity building to front-line staff to ensure that universal services are upskilled to be better able to support low level needs.

A service specification has been developed which reflects the views of universal staff and young people.
