VCS Infrastructure Support

Directorate of Strategic Planning

The North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (NELCCG) in conjunction with North East Lincolnshire Council (NELC) wishes to develop a provision for Voluntary and Community Sector Infrastructure Support in the borough of North East Lincolnshire. 

Within North East Lincolnshire and as a result of the recent review of Voluntary and Community Sector provision, there has been a re-visioning of infrastructure support services locally.

In consultation with local community based organisations and local providers NELCCG and NELC are looking to source a provider or consortium of providers to deliver infrastructure support to local voluntary and community sector organisations.

The Contract will be initially set from 1st April 2016 until 31st March 2018 with the possibility of extending the term beyond the initial contracted duration by up to 2 [two] years with mutual agreement from the Provider and NELCCG. This would be dependent on successful achievement of contract outcomes and funding available to support the contract from commissioners.
