Counties Manukau District Health Board (on behalf of the Northern Region District Health Boards) is issuing a Request for Proposals to provide peer support services for transgender people across the Northern Region. It is proposed that the selected provider(s) will deliver a locally informed Intentional Peer Support model using Peer Support Workers and Peer Volunteers. It is envisaged that this service will commence on 1 July 2019 and will run for a period of two years.
The selected Provider will deliver Peer Support services to transgender people aged 12+ and families of transgender people of all ages, living (domiciled) in the Northern Region including Counties, Auckland, Waitemata and Northland District Health Board areas.
The Peer Support Service will take a multi-faceted approach to service delivery, including: Peer Support Workers (PSW) who are trained and working in a locally informed Intentional Peer Support model; the development and management of a Peer Volunteer workforce who receive training, supervision and support to run peer led groups and other low level interventions within an appropriate scope; and moderated online channels to increase access to peers and information outside of formal appointments.
Joint or consortium proposals from a group of Providers will be considered, as well as proposals submitted by individual Providers.
