For the last three years Frome Town Council (FTC) has, successfully, contracted the services of a consultant to provide advice and support to any Frome community group, whether emerging or established to assist them in whatever is necessary to help them raise funds for their work and to improve the lives of Frome citizens.
We are looking to contract a package of support and practical advice to whom local groups and organisations could be referred to by the FTC Community Projects Officer (CPO). FTC will also coordinate a wider programme of training and support for organisations.
The package will include:
- Advice on governance, organisational objectives and the type of organisation the group may need to consider constituting as.
- Support with writing business plans for specific projects
- Direct assistance with bid writing for projects – generally as a training or hand-holding exercise rather than actually undertaking the bid-writing itself, although there may be occasional situations where the latter is preferable
- Help to run and deliver, in conjunction with the Community Project Officer, workshops on specific topics eg. Tips on fundraising from trusts.
The contract is for a 2 year period with an annual fee for providing this support of £10,000.
If you are interested in bidding for this work, please submit a CV and one page outline proposing how you would deliver this package to:
The Town Clerk firstname.lastname@example.org by 11 March 2016. Interviews will take place on the 21 March with a view to the contract starting on 1 April 2016.
