Thurrock Council is seeking to understand the market place for two types of Ofsted regulated registered residential children’s homes:
A. To exclusively place vulnerable young people aged 16 and 17 on admission, who are not yet ready to live in unregulated supported accommodation
B. For emergency placements for young people aged 12-15 on admission
C. Providers who have empty Ofsted regulated residential children’s homes, but that are still registered with Ofsted
Homes with a maximum of 4 young people are required. Smaller units are preferred.
At this stage there is no guarantee of business from the Council with this simply being a market test.
