Supporting health and social care providers in Devon

Group-based care and support, day services

MPS: group-based care & support and day services


Unregulated care and support is provided to clients in their own homes and the wider community in order to meet their assessed needs, including the provision of day care.

This service is commissioned through the supporting independence contract which is used by both Devon County Council and the Devon Partnership Trust. The contract is split into 2 lots.

Group-based care and support

This is the term for services where groups of clients come together for a service that is delivered to a number of clients at the same time.

We’re aware that COVID-19 will be a factor in what we think these services should look like in the future. There are conversations which will offer a platform for reconsidering the role of day care services in the new scenarios we all now have to plan for.

In this respect, we will ensure there is every opportunity for providers to bring fresh ideas and new delivery models forward before any commissioning decisions are finalised.

Contracting arrangements

The supporting independence framework is now closed to new applicants. The long term provision is currently being reviewed but in the meantime, however you can still apply for a spot contract by emailing us on
