This is not a call for competition

Following approval of our carers strategy ‘All Together for Carers’ in November and to align with the expiration of existing contractual arrangements in autumn 2020, we are in the process of considering how we can deliver on the ambitions and priorities set out in the strategy through the recommission of the carers assessment and support service. As you may be aware, we are in the final stages of a public consultation related to the future carers offer in Staffordshire which is due to end on the 3.1.2020, as well as drawing up pathways and undertaking an options appraisal, the results of which will be presented to cabinet in February 2020.

In order to support and inform this activity, we would like to invite you to a market engagement event. This event is for organisations who are interested in supporting carers of all ages across Staffordshire, for the avoidance of doubt this includes young carers.
