City of Wolverhampton Council is issuing an Invitation to Tender (ITT) for a Supported Employment service. The initial contract term is for 3 years with the option for up to a 2 year extension.

The Council is committed to supporting disabled and vulnerable (young) people to fulfil their potential and to contribute to society through employment. The core element of the Service will provide personalised and enabling support to assist working age individuals to find and maintain meaningful, paid employment to the following groups:

i. Adults with eligible care and support needs - learning difficulties, physical disabilities and/or autism.

ii. Adults (aged up to 65 years) with eligible care and support needs - significant learning difficulties (those furthest away from the job market) who fulfil the requirements of the Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework for Employment (ASCOF)

The Prince's Trust wish to appoint up to 12 suppliers to partner with them on the delivery of their health and social care programme across England. 

They require organisations/consortia with a track record of delivering employment support to young people. The organisations will have strong connections to the health and social care sector, or be employers in the sector, in order to secure the experiences and job opportunities for young people to move into.  The organisations will deliver pre-employment support in partnership with The Prince’s Trust with job outcomes which will support under-represented groups in accessing employment within the health and social care sector.
