Riverside Care and Support is looking for expressions of interest from organisations who would like to work in partnership with Riverside to bid for and to deliver a range of high quality services to vulnerable individuals, creating pathways for people – off the streets, away from offending, a violent relationship or substance misuse into sustainable lifestyles where they can fulfil their potential.
We are looking to work with organisations who share our vision to transform the lives of the people we work with, and revitalise the neighbourhoods in which they live. We are keen to engage with experienced providers who are able to offer innovative, evidence-based and outcome-focussed solutions to supporting individuals to gain and sustain fulfilled and independent lives.
When looking for delivery partners to deliver new services, we ask potential delivery partners to complete the Government’s Standard Selection Questionnaire (SSQ). If you are interested in working with Riverside, please complete the SSQ on our e-tendering portal, The Chest. Once submitted, we will pass evaluate the suitability of your organisation to partner with Riverside and if deemed suitable we will pass your information on to a local Riverside representative who will contact you. If we are bidding on a tender opportunity we think matches your preferences, we will contact you directly.
