Who should attend: This workshop is aimed at small – medium voluntary or community organisations or groups that are interested in delivering public services and understanding more about the commissioning environment. It would benefit managers or individuals that are involved in business, fundraising or service development within their organisation. Background information: Over the past few years the funding environment for the voluntary and community has changed substantially; moving away from grants and bidding to commissioning and tendering for the delivery of public services. This workshop will draw upon lessons learned by organisations who have successfully tendered for service provision. It will guide participants through the definition and context of commissioning and procurement, help organisations to consider where they might be able to become involved and what their next steps could be.
