Invitation to Tender: Impact Assessment of the work of Community Enterprise

Community Enterprise has been supporting social enterprises, community groups and the sustainability of the broader third sector for nearly 35 years. We have worked with hundreds, if not thousands of organisations all over Scotland from Nesting in the north of Shetland to Annan in the South and everywhere in between.

However for all our activity, we have had limited capacity over the years to research, identify and articulate our impact. We are therefore seeking a skilled and experienced consultant, or team of consultants to undertake an objective and independent study to evaluate our work, produce learning points and articulate the impact we have had over recent years.
