General principles identified in tender Although each Lot has an outline specification, these are purposely general in order to allow for creative input from prospective providers. This input should elucidate the means by which the provider will develop innovation and an outcome focused delivery that will look ahead to the impacts of the programme on the lives of service users and the communities in which they live. The DAAT wishes to see providers embracing the ideas of Resilience and Recovery in their interactions with clients.
Our underpinning principles There is no one pathway to recovery Recovery is an individual journey involving understanding of ones own health, well-being and relationship with ones community Recovery gathers momentum Recovery is not a single event to be considered at a particular point in time, the thread runs through all interventions.
