Power to Change: Contingency Support

We are seeking to set up a Framework Agreement with  individual service providers and/or a consortium (with a lead contractor) for the provision of contingency support services for grantees.   The Framework Agreement will initially be for a period of one year with the option to extend.

The Contingency Support Service (“the Service”) aims to provide Power to Change grantees with short-term, intensive external support in the spirit of operating on a ‘Funder Plus’ model and in recognition that community businesses often operate in areas of existing market failure. The purpose of the Service is to provide additional, timely business turnaround support to community businesses facing critical challenges that are threatening their viability (and thus threatening Power to Change’s investment). The Service will enable us to support community businesses when they are in crisis and to better understand the issues and identify practical steps to address and improve the resilience of the community business to remain viable and continue to provide services to local communities.

The deadline for submitting a completed tender is noon on 4th November 2019.
