Following a review of the service and a market engagement/stakeholder event in August, we will be advertising the tender for our Community Family Support Service in mid November.

The new contract will start July 2017.  It will operate in all areas of Suffolk.  The current service delivers a volunteer led outreach service provided by volunteers for families with children aged 0-12. This independent service supports families through befriending and practical assistance. Typically supporting families who are new to the area, with low or problematic school attendance or families with a need for emotional support, including post natal depression and loneliness.

We would welcome your input as a potential bidder/stakeholder regarding our proposals for the new service.

You are therefore invited to a market engagement event for our Community Family Support Service in Suffolk on :

Wednesday 2 November 2016
2pm to 4pm
at Endeavour House, Ipswich IP1 2BX

To book a place please email Katrina Browning katrina.browning@suffolk.gov.uk and confirm who will be attending to represent your organisation.  You are welcome to have more than one representative, spaces permitting, therefore please also provide any additional names.  Any additional places will be confirmed after the 24 October 2016.

If you are not able to join us we would still appreciate any feedback or comments that you are able to contribute as we value your experience and expertise.
