Homebased Support Re-design

Organisation: The City of Edinburgh Council

Value: N/A

Contact: Paula Deegan

This is an update to the PIN which was published on 28th October 2020 from Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnerships (EHSCP). Following a significant period of engagement and consultation, with the providers who noted their interest in the original PIN, we are today informing the market of our intent to revise the scope of the original PIN to include all adult homebased support and not just older adults as was originally proposed. This is in acknowledgement that existing “care at home” providers in Edinburgh already support a wider group of people – approximately 25% of people supported by “care at home” providers are under the age of 65 years with a range of support needs linked to Learning Disabilities, Mental Health and/or Physical Disabilities and not to old age and frailty.
