Tender Opportunity: Black Country Wayfinding Platform

Active Black Country (ABC) have identified the need to invest in the development of a bespoke wayfinding platform in conjunction with the 2022 Commonwealth Games. Commonwealth Active Communities funding has been secured for the region which will enable the development and delivery of a modernised activity finder that uses open data technology to enable residents and the paid and volunteer workforce in the Black Country to find and book onto activity opportunities (both virtual and face to face) that are suitable to their situation, profile and preferences. Considerable research has been undertaken on this subject over the course of the last 2 years – consultation with 60 Black Country health professionals in late 2021 clearly demonstrated that the single largest barrier preventing them from referring more into physical activity is a lack of knowledge of suitable local opportunities.

Audience
The platform will be community facing and it is envisaged to be a tool that;

  • healthcare and allied health professionals will be able to utilise to enable pathways from primary and secondary care to physical activity
  • education professionals will utilise to source appropriate third-party support for physical activity within schools
  • general public will use as part of a wider campaign to activate a legacy of physical activity from the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
