Establishment and Operation of a Recovery Community in North East Lincolnshire

Deadline 14th June 2018 

The Authority is seeking to commission a Provider who will establish, develop and sustain an open access, accessible drug and alcohol recovery community within North East Lincolnshire. Every year around 170 people end treatment from local service providers for drugs and alcohol related addictions on the basis that they have become drug/alcohol free. Maintaining that status can be a challenging proposition for people with an addiction and success will often depend upon strengthening other aspects of their lives and building up their resilience. North East Lincolnshire would like organisations to inform the specification and set out their vision to North East Lincolnshire Council (NELC) about what form the recovery community could take. As such NELC do not wish to be prescriptive but rather invite organisations to bring their ideas to them. The Authority is requesting all interested organisations to complete the questionnaire available on Yortender. The Authority may wish to invite organisations to a discussion to explore their response in further detail on 3rd July 2018.

Domestic Abuse – Non Convicted Perpetrator Programme

Deadline 2nd July

In North East Lincolnshire the Authority works with a broad range of agencies, such as the Police, Health and the third sector, using the ‘One System Approach’. This way of working seeks to address these challenges by working together and putting in place real and lasting change. The Authority is doing this by strengthening our partnership working and investing in areas where the Authority need to improve.

Research indicates that domestic abuse is prevalent in all neighbourhoods and it is not confined to particular communities, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or social status. With this in mind the Authority needs to ensure that all domestic abuse provision is tailored to meet the needs of all residents of North East Lincolnshire.

The Authority are now looking to commission a voluntary perpetrator programme, offering an opportunity to perpetrators of domestic abuse who are concerned about their own behaviours to change these behaviours. Clearly, working to change the behaviour of perpetrators is paramount in protecting and supporting victims, preventing escalation and decreasing risk.
