Successful Outcome For Cylch Caron As Delivery Partner Is Appointed

Following an open tender process, Mid Wales Housing Association has been successful in being awarded the contract for the delivery of the Cylch Caron project.

Rebecca Evans AM, Minister for Social Services and Public Health, said, "The appointment of Mid Wales Housing Association as the Delivery Partner for Cylch Caron is another important step forward in the development of this innovative centre. Cylch Caron will bring health, social care and housing together under one roof. In keeping with the principle of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014, these services will place prevention and early intervention at the heart of everything they do, helping people to stay well and live independently."

Ceredigion County Council Leader, Councillor Ellen ap Gwynn said, "We are very pleased to welcome Mid Wales Housing Association as the Delivery Partner for Cylch Caron. Awarding the contract is another key milestone in this important Ceredigion Public Service Board where Ceredigion County Council is working in conjunction with Hywel Dda University Health Board to deliver a housing, care and health facility specifically designed for the rural area around Tregaron. Mid Wales Housing Association will be responsible for the design and build element of the project."

Teresa Owen, Director of Public Health for Hywel Dda University Health Board said, "This is a key step forward in the Cylch Caron project and excellent news for the Tregaron community. I look forward to working with our new partner, Mid Wales Housing Association, on this important development."

Interested parties were required to submit a tender proposal to Ceredigion County Council and Hywel Dda University Health Board. A Panel consisting of officers from both organisations evaluated the proposal against three stages namely Qualification, Quality and Commercial. Each Evaluator was allocated proposals to evaluate relative to their area of expertise, ensuring the tenderer was capable and had the necessary skills to deliver the contract.

Sian Howells, Director of New Business for Mid Wales Housing Association said, "Mid Wales Housing Association are delighted to have been awarded the contract for the delivery of the Cylch Caron Project and very much look forward to working with the Community and Project Partners to make this Integrated Care Facility a reality".

Work will now progress on the detailed plans for the Cylch Caron project working closely with Mid Wales Housing Association for the submission of the full business case to Welsh Government.
