This RFP is for the purchase of Intensive Support (Intensive Resourcing Level 3), a component of Mana Whaikaha, the prototype for a new way of supporting Disabled People and Whanau launched in the MidCentral region on 1 October 2018.
Intensive Support has come out of the co-design work undertaken as part of the planning and implementation process for Mana Whaikaha. Through the co design process participants identified a need for intensive support to assist disabled people and whānau who are dealing with significant challenges in their lives. Supports can be accessed immediately and can be used until the person or family is safe or in a more stable position and able to engage with Mana Whaikaha, their community and other services.

Intensive Support is a pool of funding available to create short term arrangements to support a person and their family.

Intensive Support includes:
o purchasing something for the person and whānau
o engaging a provider to work intensively with a disabled child, adult, and their whānau to address significant challenges, ensure people are safe, set up supports and create a sustainable longer-term plan that may include putting in place immediate community or disability support in the short term.
Additional detail on Intensive Support and detailed requirements are contained in the attached RFP.
