Care at Home Accreditation Process

If you are a provider of domiciliary care (Care at Home) within the Nottingham City region and wish to become an Accredited Provider this page outlines how your organisation can apply for a contract with Nottingham City Council.

Please note that this Accreditation process will form the mechanism for securing providers that are required in addition to those provided under primary contracts for this service (currently the Care at Home Framework). The Council will always place packages through the Framework as its primary contracting mechanism where this is possible, and will only approach the Accredited Providers in the event that the Framework cannot provide the services required.
