Notice from Stoke-on-trent City council:

In light of the unprecedented impact of the current Covid 19 situation on the care and support market, it has made it difficult for Stoke-on-Trent City Council to proceed with the planned procurement exercise for the new Stoke-on-Trent All Age Carer Support Service.

As such we have taken the decision to delay the tender of this service at the present time. Our current commissioned provider, Carers Hub, will continue to provide support to carers throughout the city until we are in a position to tender and award a new contract. We envisage that the procurement exercise will commence around August 2020.
