New Case Study – Home-Start Aberdeenshire Consortium

Posted in: General News

A new case study has been published on the Home-Start Aberdeenshire Consortium.

Aberdeenshire Council wanted to streamline its services for children and families and started a competitive process for Local Authority-wide services for families with children under 5 years. Five Home-Start organisations active in Aberdeenshire collaborated to tender and win the competitive contract.

Background

There are five Home-Start organisations active in Aberdeenshire. Their core work of all the Home-Start organisations is the same, but some do additional work responding to the needs of the families of the area they work in. All consortium members received funding from Aberdeenshire Council in the form of a Service Level Agreement; however, the additional activities are funded in a variety of ways.

Aberdeenshire Council wanted to streamline its services for children and families and started a
competitive process for services for families with children under 5 years.

A series of services, delivered by a wide range of providers through Service Level Agreements and Grants, were to be offered as lots through a tender process in early 2016.
