Thank you for your FOI request dated 23^rd September.  We need some
clarification before we can answer your enquiry –  the commissioning
manager has asked some questions as follows:

 

“The request asks what substance misuse services have been procured that
incorporate housing related support, which we don’t have.  The request is
a bit unclear,, there is no timescale on it, so do they want contracts
we’ve ever tendered or  last year? Last five years? ?? “

 

Please send your clarification to me or Clive Hallam
([1][email address]) and we will endeavour to complete  your
request within the 20 day timeframe.

 

Best wishes

Dear Moira Shields,

Many thanks for your response, the contract I am referring to is HC0113 –Wiltshire and Swindon Substance Misuse Service incorporating Housing Related Support, this was procured back in 2017.

I hope this helps clarify. Apologies if this falls under Wiltshire council, and indeed if that is the case I will contact them for the information.

Yours sincerely,

Julie Thompson

Thank you for your recent clarification on your query raised as a Freedom
of Information request on September 23^rd 2020.  In response to your
original enquiry the response from the Commissoining Manager of Swindon’s
Substance Misuse Services is as follows:

 

"The Swindon element of the contract for substance misuse treatment with
the current provider does not incorporate housing related support. That is
a Wiltshire specific requirement. Any and all queries regarding this
should be directed to Wiltshire Council."

 

If you are dissatisfied with the service you have received in relation to
your request and wish to make a complaint or request a review, you should
contact:

 

Customer Services

Civic Offices

Euclid Street

Swindon

Website: [1]www.[Swindon Borough Council request email]

 

The complaints/review procedure involves a full review and an examination
of all the information by the Council's Monitoring Officer. 

 

If you are not content with the outcome of our conclusion, you may apply
directly to the Information Commissioner's Office for a decision, before
contacting the Council. Generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless
you have exhausted the Council's own complaints procedure.

 

The Information Officer can be contacted at :
