As part of the Service, social businesses will have access to:
— Advice and Guidance;
— Workshop and Master Classes.
The Framework Agreement and Service provision will commence in April 2014 and will run until March 2015 in the first instance, subject to continued EU and Welsh Government funding. Any extension beyond this will be dependant on the Centre securing future programmes and the requirements within those programmes. Any extension will be subject to approval by the Centre.
All client beneficiaries will receive the Service local to their business area.
The Centre requires Organisations to provide the following:
— Specialist organisational development advice and guidance – provided by an adviser (the ‘Adviser’).
— Workshops and Master Classes – provided by a trainer (the ‘Trainer’)
