Community Builders Service
Main contract details
Southend-on-Sea Borough Council is seeking to award a contract for the provision of a Community Builder Service in Southend-on-Sea.
The Community builders will “walk the streets” in chosen neighbourhoods in the four Localities in Southend-on-Sea and undertake strength based conversations with residents. They will identify community connectors who could carry these conversations out in their networks.
The Southend 2050 Ambition has been co-created with residents, local groups, partners and businesses. The outcomes cannot be effectively delivered only by The Council. As the process moves to co-designing proposals, co- production and delivery engaged and empowered citizens and partners are required to make the outcomes a reality.
The Community Builders service is key to delivering the Southend 2050 outcomes and the Community Builders will rebuild residents and communities trust in their own strengths and assets and for connections to be made between residents. In turn residents will link up around their very local priorities to develop projects and activities to address them.
The contract start date is 2nd August 2021 and will expire on 1st August 2023, with no option to extend. The closing date for submitting a tender response is Monday 31st May 2021 at 12noon.
