ACVO invites submissions of tenders for our Third Sector Hub Feasibility Study

Over the past few months we have heard a growing demand for collaboration and sharing of knowledge and resources. In response to this, the team at ACVO have been discussing the possibility working toward establishing a dedicated Third Sector Hub for the city.

The aim of the project would be to develop a space to facilitate a new dynamic and supportive ecosystem that empowers organisations in the third sector to work more efficiently, effectively, and collectively for the benefit of the diverse communities in Aberdeen.

Following a successful bid to the UK Government’s Levelling Up Fund, we are conducting a feasibility study to look into the logistics of the project.

We are now inviting qualified and experienced individuals and firms to submit tenders for our Feasibility Study for the Establishment of a Third Sector Hub in Aberdeen.

This study aims to assess the viability and practicality of creating a centralised space for voluntary organisations to work together, share services and enhance their collective impact on the community.

With the study, we hope to equip ourselves and other stakeholders with the information needed to make informed decisions about the viability and potential outcomes of establishing a Third Sector Hub in Aberdeen. The study will provide a thorough analysis of the project’s feasibility from various perspectives to aid our planning and decision-making processes, and to provide potential funders with the information required to assess the deliverability and likely impact of the proposal.

All tenders must be submitted electronically in PDF format to enquiries@acvo.org.uk with the subject line “Feasibility Study Tender – [Your Organisation Name]”

The deadline for submissions is Friday 24 May 2024 at 12 noon (1200hrs) with the outcome of the process expected to be communicated on 31 May 2024.
