The Torus Foundation plans to run seven Healthy Neighbours projects across Liverpool, St Helens and Warrington. The areas they are looking at working within Liverpool are Daneville L4, Granby Triangle and Braybrook Estate Norris Green.
They are looking for an organisation that is:
- a community-based organisation, with established social and peer networks in the local neighbourhood of the project
- able to reach all members of a community – not limited to a specific interest, age, or ethnic group
- experienced in recruiting, supporting, training and managing volunteers
- located within the ward of the target area or can establish an office/hub within the target area.
The commissioned organisation for each contract will work as part of a network commissioned by Torus Foundation to deliver the project in their area. The selected organisations will be responsible for recruiting a paid Hub Coordinator and 15-20 volunteers to implement the project over a 12 month period.
Each ‘hub’ will aim to reach around 700-800 households with their activities.
The contract will be up to the value of £45,000 per area.
