Connect Hackney - Invitation to Tender

Learning from Phase 1 of the Connect Hackney programme indicates that the programme has been reaching people who are at risk of social isolation and has been successful in providing a range of activities for people to engage in. 

Our learning from Phase 1 also identified a gap in relation to how the programme identifies and supports individuals who are already isolated, particularly as a result of a significant life change, which research identifies as a key contributing factor to social isolation. 

As we move to a revised programme model and the second phase of commissioning for Connect Hackney, we want to address the gap identified in Phase 1, by commissioning a person-centred connecting and signposting service to enable older people to increase their social contact with others, with the aim of improving their wellbeing by reducing isolation and loneliness

The value of this tender is up to £350k, between May 2018 – March 2021 and the full specification for this service can be found between pages 15-18 of Part A. The read more button below will take you to the invitation to tender and application form. Please note that the closing date for submissions is 12pm noon on Wednesday 4th April 2018.
