Falkirk Council’s Employment and Training Unit (ETU) is keen to speak to third sector organisations working in Forth Valley who are interested in finding out more about the support available locally to become a Supported Business.
To be a Supported Business, at least 30% of an organisation’s workforce will be disabled or disadvantaged, and the organisation’s primary aim is the social and professional integration of disabled or disadvantaged persons.
There is a range of support options being offered, including:
- support to develop partnerships or consortia, exploring different models of consortia and providing practical support to build effective partnership agreements
- support with writing tenders, including reviewing an organisations’ tender documents or help to pre-prepare a bank of information on your organisation for use in applications
- events and workshops on collaboration and tender development
- online resources, including a 10-stage guide to procurement, and a range of templates to assist organisations
