A report seeking approval for the procurement of the keyworker service.


Portfolio Holders – Councillor Margaret Bell and Councillor Jeff Morgan

Additional documents:


Councillor Jeff Morgan (Portfolio Holder for Children and Families) introduced this report which set out the procurement process for the Keyworker Service for approval.  Councillor Morgan explained that the Keyworker service provided support for Coventry and Warwickshire residents aged 0-25 who were autistic, had a learning disability, or both, who had been identified as at imminent risk of admission to a mental health hospital.  The keyworker service had initially been provided on a successful pilot basis and there was now an opportunity to embark on a tender process to procure the service for a further two years from April 2023.




That Cabinet:


  1. Approves in consultation with the Portfolio Holders for Children and Families and Adult Social Care & Health proceeding with an appropriate procurement process for the provision of the Keyworker service by Warwickshire County Council, on behalf of partner organisations Coventry City Council and the Integrated Care Board.


  1. Approves and authorises the Strategic Director for People to enter into all relevant contracts for the provision of the Keyworker service on terms and conditions acceptable to the Strategic Director for Resources.
