Commissioning opportunity 1 > embedded researcher

Connect Hackney is now half way through and the evaluation contract for phase 1 has come to an end. We are now seeking a new evaluation partner. 

The tender price for this contract is capped at £250k inclusive of VAT and the closing date for bids is 12pm on Monday 26 November 2018. If you have any questions after reviewing the specification, please e-mail them to

Commissioning opportunity 2 > community activities
Earlier this year, we invited organisations to bid to deliver ‘community activities for older people in community spaces’.  We have been unable to allocate the full amount of funding available and are issuing the invitation to tender again. We have also revised the delivery targets.

£80k is available for this strand of work (from an initial allocation of £120k) and bids are capped at £20k for project delivery taking place from January 2019 to December 2020.   

Please e-mail if you have any questions and please do not apply for the same activity or project if you have previously submitted a bid to this commissioning strand.

The closing dates for bids is 12pm on Wednesday 21 November 2018.
