The Council intends to shortly commence the tender process for activities for adults with learning disability in Tower Hamlets.

The tender will seek bidders to be part of a Framework of providers from whom we will spot purchase activities for adults with learning disability to be delivered within the borough of Tower Hamlets.  Once the Framework has been set up, the Council will only be spot purchasing activities provision from organisations that have been successful and are listed as approved suppliers in the Framework.

The redesigned service model has a strengthened focus on offering a greater variety of developmental valued and fulfilling activities including peer led activities that offer greater choice, personalisation and flexibility, supporting individuals to develop their social, emotional, communication and independent living skills and to participate in mainstream community activities.  

The Council will be seeking innovative, creative, flexible and committed providers prepared to work in close and effective partnership with adults with learning disability, their family/carer and a wide range of local partners, including the Council, to join the Framework of providers.
