Have Your Say - Day Services Framework

Derbyshire County Council is planning to re-commission and procure a new framework for external day services. This framework offers choices to people with a health or social care need to take part in a range of day services or opportunities on a spot purchasing basis, and is key to enabling people to live a more stimulating and enhanced life.

The intention is to create an open framework in order to procure flexible and innovative services that meet people’s current and future needs, supporting them to be engaged in meaningful activities, to develop independent living skills, and to access their local communities.

You are invited to participate in developing the new framework. Your input would be welcomed about what you feel day services could deliver for the people you care for and what your experience of delivering day services has been.

Tell us about your experience supporting:

- Older people  

- People with Dementia  

- People with a physical disability and/or sensory impairment

- People with a learning disability and/or autism

- People with mental ill health

- People with profound and multiple learning disabilities

We are inviting you to meet face to face with representatives from the commissioning and contracts team at one of the following three engagement events:

 -       Bakewell, Agricultural Business Centre, Wednesday, 14 August, 2pm to 3:30 pm

-       Swadlincote, Oakland Village, Tuesday, 20 August, 2pm to 3:30pm

-       South Normanton, The Post Mill Centre, Thursday, 5 September, 2pm to 3:30pm
