INVITATION TO TENDER - Independent analysis of published National Care Service Consultation responses


On 9th August 2021, the Scottish Government published a consultation which sets out their proposals for the creation of a National Care Service. The proposals are intended to improve the way Scottish Government deliver social care, following the recommendations of the Independent Review of Adult Social Care.

The Promise Scotland has submitted a response that has drawn from the Independent Care Review’s Evidence Framework with a focus on the cultural, behavioural, practice, service redesign, organisational, policy and legislative change required to #KeepThePromise, based on the views and contributions of over 5,500 children, young people, families and workforce members.

The Promise Scotland would like to better understand the potential impacts of the proposed National Care Service and the inclusion of children’s services, on the existing commitment and work underway to #KeepThePromise. To do this, The Promise Scotland is tendering for an analysis of those published responses to this consultation, which make specific reference to the impact of this proposal on Scotland’s commitment to #KeepThePromise.

The Promise Scotland wants this independent analysis to:

  • Provide an overview of the key themes that respondents identify as having a potentially positive or negative impact on the #KeepThePromise commitment.
  • Provide a detailed analysis of the ideas, proposals and opportunities identified by respondents to ensure #KeepThePromise is achieved by 2030. These could be categorised by the opportunities and challenges raised by a National Care Service. Other means of categorising this detailed analysis will be welcome.
  • Report in accessible formats, including an executive summary, that can be used by The Promise Scotland and all those who have committed to #KeepThePromise, to influence the necessary change, pace and progress required to #KeepThePromise by 2030 at the latest.

Deadline for submissions: 2pm (GMT), Monday 10th January 2022
