BAME Community Action Programme Invitation to Tender
Ageing Better in Camden has agreed to establish a new Community Action Project specifically targeted for work with isolated older people in Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities in Camden. The aim is to help older people from BAME communities to reduce their social isolation and loneliness, as well as make connections and build networks.
In order to support local capacity to deliver this project Ageing Better in Camden has already commissioned Voluntary Action Camden (VAC) to offer capacity building support to Camden based agencies who are considering submitting a bid up to the deadline on Monday 4 June 2018.
We anticipate that it would be difficult for a single organisation to deliver this project across the borough and therefore that groups and organisations will need to work together in order to build and deliver the work with different groups of older people across the borough. However the contract will be awarded to a single lead organisation working with multiple partners.
The documents below form the Invitation to Tender (ITT) for the BAME Community Action Project:
The project will run from October 2018 – March 2021 and the total funds available are £112,254.
Community Activity Programme Invitation to Tender
ABC has identified a need for an increased number of supportive activities for older people over 60 across Camden. We are therefore commissioning a programme of organisations to deliver ‘Gold Standard’ Community Activities to enable older people to attend supportive and well run activities in their local community. The aim is to help older people reduce their social isolation and loneliness, as well as make connections and build networks. The deadline for applying is Wednesday 4th July 2018

Funds of £20,000 over 2 years are available to organisations who are able to provide a range of activities specifically for older people.
