Creative Islington Opportunities

Islington Council invites expressions of interest from suppliers for Ambitious Communities through the London Tenders Portal.

Islington Council invites expressions of interest from suppliers for Ambitious Communities through the London Tenders Portal.
Ambitious Communities is about social action that identifies and uses the resources and skills of young people and the communities they live in to bring about positive change.
 
Ambitious Communities funding will support asset based approaches that draw on and help young people realise their potential and strengthen relationships in local communities. Through social action, young people can take practical steps to create positive change of benefit to the wider community as well as themselves.
 
Ambitious Communities programmes support young people to play a more active role within their local community and through participating, develop social and personal skills. Programmes and activities delivered by a range of organisations will help address negative perceptions of young people and influence the way different groups are viewed, benefiting young people and the families and communities of which they are a part. Unlike targeted work, it provides an approach which can increase understanding between residents of different ages and backgrounds, while increasing co-operation and greater tolerance.
More information about the opportunity can be found on the Islington Council website.
The principles that underpin the commissioning and providing of the youth offer are set out in the Islington Outcomes Framework for Young People, a copy of which is attached.Suppliers are recommended to read the outcomes framework to ensure they understand the aims of the Islington youth offer.
