Community Activation Academy Tender Opportunity

Community Activation Academy Tender Opportunity

Black Country partners have successfully gained funding from Sport England’s Commonwealth Active Communities Fund (CAC), using the 2022 Commonwealth Games to act as a catalyst to help us to continue to drive transformational change.

The CAC funding will support the Black Country to increase activity levels across the least active to support good mental and physical health and reduce inequalities in activity levels.

As part of this programme, Black Country partners are looking to develop a Community Activation Academy – a bespoke platform that will enable us to harness the power of the messenger effect and provide Black Country residents with the information and resources they need to support and encourage others to be active and to enable a genuine legacy of participation from the Commonwealth Games.

As such, we are inviting tenders for the development of a web-based platform that will provide us with an opportunity to develop the activity workforce of the future.

Download the full tender specification here.
