Connect Hackney - Commissioning: Complex Needs- deadline 20th March at 5pm

Source By:Connect Hackney, Hackney CVS

Connect Hackney is a £5.8m programme aimed at enabling Hackney residents aged 50 plus to improve their wellbeing by reducing or preventing isolation. The programme is managed by Hackney CVS and is one of fourteen programme areas in England funded through the six-year National Lottery Community Fund - Fulfilling Lives, Ageing Better programme. The ultimate aim of the programme is to learn which kinds of projects and interventions work best to reduce and prevent the social isolation of older people.
Connect Hackney is in its second phase of delivery and we are now looking commission a range of projects that meet the needs of socially isolated older people with complex needs. We have shortlisted these needs under the following three categories:

1.  People living with dementia/Alzheimer’s;
2.  People affected by mental health issues, specifically depression and anxiety;
3.  People who find it difficult to leave home regularly.

We are interested in projects that offer socially isolated older people living with at least one of the identified complex needs, the opportunity to increase their social connections and reduce feelings of loneliness. Bidders can determine the type of activities which would be delivered as part of their project, for example, fun activities, sporting activities, walks for people with dementia, or using technology which better connects older people who struggle to leave home. However, projects should be based on evidence of need and likely impact.
We are looking to award a minimum of one contract up a value of £85,000 for each of the three complex needs themes, (3 x £85,000 contracts). We will consider awarding a fourth contract if any one of the three themes generates a strong response. The total funding allocation for this tender is £340,000. 
We will be hosting a ‘Meet the funder Q&A session’ for potential bidders to find out more about the opportunity and ask any questions. The event will be held at Hackney CVS, The Adiaha Antigha Centre, 24-30 Dalston Lane, Hackney, E8 3AZ on Tuesday 26 February, 12.30pm – 2pm. Click here to reserve your place.

Bidders are also invited to submit any questions to the Connect Hackney team by emailing The deadline for submitting questions is 5pm 13 March 2019.
