Ready for Success

Ready for Success assists third sector organisations to strengthen their ability to successfully compete for future contract opportunities with Solihull Council and by doing so also improve their knowledge and confidence when bidding to other commissioning authorities and organisations.

This is a unique business development package offering organisations co-delivered workshops from adult social care and public health commissioners at Solihull Council and sector specialists at Development in Social Enterprise.

The programme is fully funded by Solihull Council and also backed by Solihull Together for better lives, a partnership of local health and social care organisations working together to improve the co-ordination of services in the borough.

The programme runs until April 2016 and kicks off with a series of workshops to prepare organisations for changes in the commissioning and procurement landscape.
