Temporary hold on responding to new proposals for accommodation
As stated in the quarterly demand of August 2023, there are several developments planned across the County in the next 2 years. This places us in a good position to meet the level of demand. There is confidence that most of these schemes will be completed between now and 2025.
We are therefore unable to respond to any new proposals for accommodation until April 2024.
In the interim, urgent, or specific accommodation need emerging during this time is likely to be based on the needs of individuals i.e., supporting hospital discharge or residential care home closure. These needs will be communicated via the Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) in the first instance.
For further information, please see our SCIP market statement:

How supported living is provided
We manage the commissioning and contracting arrangements for individual packages of supported living, or ongoing support for individuals, via a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) within the ProContract procurement system.
Register as a provider and submit an enrolment application
You’ll be guided through the process in the ProContract portal. During the enrolment application you’ll be asked to:
- provide company details
- answer quality questions relating to supported living services
- upload relevant required documents
You won’t be able to work with us to provide supported living if you’re not on our DPS.
What happens next
Once you have submitted your application, your submission will be evaluated in line with the dates specified on the pro contract portal and you will receive feedback via the portal to say if you have been successful, within this timeframe.
If you would like join our monthly supported living teleconferences, visit our Provider Teleconferences page for dates and joining instructions.
Checking accommodation is suitable for supported living
Many of our support requests require accommodation as part of the package.
