Following the first round of commissioning in July 2011, during which Manchester City Council commissioned youth related activities from voluntary sector organisations within the city for the period 1 August 2011 to 31 March 2013. Manchester City Council are now seeking to commission further services for young people aged 10-19 for the period of 1 April 2012 to 31 March 2013. The second round of funding is being jointly commissioned by Neighbourhood Services and Children's Services and reflects the jointly agreed Valuing Young People Strategy.
As in round one the purpose of the fund is to ensure that vulnerable young people (aged 10-19) from the City of Manchester (and those for whom the City acts as corporate parent) have access to positive targeted activities which are appropriate to meet their needs and which will allow them to flourish in a safe environment.
Manchester City Council are looking to contract with voluntary and community sector providers of youth provision who are appropriately placed to work effectively with young people in areas of most need across the City.
Total Fund Value: £500,000 (for the period April 1st 2012 to March 31st 2013) Bids are sought for activities / services with contract values with a minimum of £5,000 and a maximum value of £30,000.
