You are invited to submit a tender for the Provision of Financial Capability Support for Building Better Opportunities(BBO) Projects for Lancashire. Selnet Ltd wishes to appoint a delivery partner who can clearly demonstrate the ability to meet our requirements and who offers the most economically advantageous tender.
Applications are invited from suitably qualified and experienced organisation/s to provide specialist support to improve a participant’s financial capabilities from each of the three projects. Projects; Age of Opportunity, Invest in Youth and Changing Futures work across the whole of Lancashire. Our projects have been in operation for approximately 18 months and during this time it has become evident that a significant proportion of BBO participants are experiencing exclusion from the labour market due to financial limitations. These relate to the participants personal financial situation or financial capabilities, and as such these circumstances act as a barrier to progression for the individual.
Proposals are sought from organisation/s that can support this important function helping participants remove barriers which present a major obstacle to them. Financial barriers often relate to the balance between benefits and employment income, poor financial management and debt, and in many cases need access to affordable care provision for dependants. The successful bidder will provide participants with skills, knowledge and ability to manage or understand their financial situation better and in some cases help them to make the transition into work and then budget accordingly.
The opportunity is advertised on The Chest:
