Invitation to tender - social impact tool development

Friday 07 February 2020

We are looking for a contractor to continue our development of a Social Impact tool, focusing on working with Urban CLTs from across England and Wales.

About the Project

Through the EU-funded Sustainable Housing for Inclusive and Cohesive Cities (SHICC) project, the National CLT Network successfully commissioned a social impact tool for CLTs and community led housing groups to develop their understanding of and establish their social impact outside of delivering affordable homes.

We are now in a position to expand this work and roll it out across our network. We also want to be able to use the information and data collected through the CLTs’ use of the tool in our wider work, including our advocacy and communications work. 

As part of the SHICC project and also the Cohesive Communities Fund (CCF) we have identified 16 urban CLTs we are supporting to develop their membership in order to be truly reflective of the communities they represent. These groups will form a test cohort, encompassing social impact expansion, member outreach and stakeholder engagement.


About the National CLT Network

The National CLT Network is the official charity supporting Community Land Trusts in England and Wales. Our vision is to see a Community Land Trust in every community that wants one.

The National CLT Network is a membership body made up of CLTs and organisations from across the country. We work on behalf of CLTs and in turn, our members shape and govern our work. We provide funding, resources, training and advice for CLTs and work with Government, local authorities, lenders and funders to establish the best conditions for CLTs to grow and flourish.

We are also part of a broad alliance of organisations promoting and supporting community-led housing in the UK.

Further information on this can be found in the Invitation to Tender document at the bottom of this page.
