Expression of Interest: Employment Support Design Project for Over 50’s in Greater Manchester

We are looking for expressions of interest from organisations or consortiums with experience using iterative co-design and prototyping methods for a large-scale project to develop new approaches to supporting over 50s back into work.

Submissions close at 3pm on Wednesday, 11 March 2020.

The Centre for Ageing Better (Ageing Better), in partnership with Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), are looking to establish a large-scale, design-led project to develop approaches to supporting over 50s back into work. This project aims to build on our previous work exploring the barriers to work for over 50s.

This project will involve working with over 50s, service providers, commissioners, policy makers and employers to design and prototype effective models of support, drawing upon their lived experience and expertise.

We are looking for an organisation or consortium with experience of using co-design and prototyping methods across different projects of varying scale. This organisation would need to demonstrate their ability to iteratively identify, implement and assess improvements to ideas developed ​ and their ability to work with a wide range of stakeholders to develop new ideas and approaches. Ideally, we would like to work with an organisation or consortium that has knowledge and understanding of working with local authorities and specifically in employment and skills.

Further information on the background and scope are provided within the expression of interest linked below.

If you are interested in responding please do via The Chest linked here. Any responses sent to an Ageing Better email will not be considered and must be resubmitted through The Chest.
