Issue details

Core Drugs and Alcohol Treatment Service

Request to award two contracts to deliver support to residents who have issues with substance misuse. Tackling drug and alcohol misuse is a priority for Public Health in the borough and these substance misuse services play a pivotal role in the delivery of the vision and outcomes set out within the Public Health Outcomes Framework. One contract will support adults who have issues with drugs and alcohol and one contract will deliver support for adults with alcohol-specific issues. They work jointly to offer tailored support to individuals dependant on their needs. These new contracts are due to start on 1 July 2021.


The over-arching aim of this contract award is to continue service provision for residents across Westminster. We will utilise early learning from the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure services are able to offer innovative outreach and enhanced digital support for our residents and will work flexibly to respond to emerging health and social needs.
