The Council has an existing contract for handypersons services that is due to end on the 30.9.2018, and therefore the Council is seeking to find a provider(s) for this service. The Council would welcome interest from individual provider or a collective / consortium of providers that would be interested in delivering these services. The provider will undertake a variety of jobs examples are listed below: - Small building repairs / improvements - minor plumbing / carpentry / electrical work, securing loose carpets, putting up curtain rails, shelves, - Safety measures - fitting key safes, smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, grab rails, clearing and cleaning paths, - Home security - door and window locks, door chains and door viewers, - Energy efficiency checks - installing draught excluders, radiator heat reflectors and energy efficient light bulbs, - Other jobs: Moving furniture, installing standalone telecare, signposting to other care and support services as required. The jobs should take no more than 2-3 hours. The expectation is that jobs would be completed within 2-3 weeks of the initial request. There will also be a small amount of urgent hospital discharge work which will need to be completed to a tighter timescale. The provider should have systems in place to receive referrals from the general public and organisations working with the community, as well as receiving referrals directly from the Council. It is important that the cost of the service is easily understood and transparent to members of the public who may use the service. The Council are looking for a flexible, innovative service, which can meet the diverse needs of the community. The service will be for a two years with a possibility of two one year extensions. The Council will work closely with the successful provider(s) to shape and promote the handypersons provision. The Handypersons service is currently delivered to the Council via an existing provider, therefore TUPE may be applicable to one or more posts.Bidder Day: 12/07/2018 (8am-1pm); Town Hall, Weston-super-Mare
