Strengthening bids, organisations and impact
When our clients in the voluntary, charity or social economy (VCSE) sectors are bidding for funding contracts, we help to strengthen their submissions, improve their services and prove their positive social impact.
Commissioners need to know that they are well governed, well managed, cost effective and that their work has a measurable positive impact. This means that VCSEs need to have the plans, skills, evaluation techniques and confidence to bid for and win contracts.
We help with:
- Contract readiness
- Investment readiness
- Social Value readiness
- Health check assessment
- Partnership delivery, and
- Business planning and sustainability.
All these factors can be measured and monitored using Indicate, our on- line assessment tool. This asks users to make an honest assessment of their progress against a set of themed and relevant criteria. It helps to identify strengths, challenges and areas that need support.
We build a version of Indicate to support each client and many of our clients choose to combine its use with a series of strategic workshops that kick-start their bid preparation.
