As part of a new initiative to support communities in the Midlands, contractor G F Tomlinson is searching for a not-for-profit organisation to collaborate with, to deliver an impactful community project on a pro bono basis.
G F Tomlinson’s new Local Communities Partnership Programme forms part of the organisation’s ongoing commitment to delivering social, economic and environmental benefits in the local communities through the SCAPE Construction framework.
G F Tomlinson is working with multi-disciplinary construction practice Arc Partnership, a joint venture between Nottinghamshire County Council and SCAPE, to deliver the programme which is being launched this month, and they are inviting applications from not-for-profit and charitable organisations in Nottinghamshire that would like construction-based advice and support for a community project.
Following the application process, four selected charitable organisations will be invited to attend an informal, virtual, ‘Dragons Den’-style event, to discuss their projects in more detail with a panel of industry experts to gain advice and guidance.
The panel – which will include representatives from G F Tomlinson, Arc Partnership and other professionals from the construction industry – will select a project they can deliver, using skills within the team, and will forge a long-term partnership with the chosen organisation, providing an ongoing legacy of support.
The successful not-for-profit organisation will have access to continual support and advice - including time, resources, expertise and materials, as part of the partnership programme.
How to apply
Applications are now open and can be made by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form.
Interested organisations are being asked to complete a straightforward application form, including as much information as possible explaining how the organisation and project would benefit from the partnership and leave a positive, lasting legacy for the local community.
The deadline for submitting applications is Monday 15 March 2021.
The four organisations selected to meet the panel at the ‘Dragon’s Den’ style event, will be notified by Monday 22 March 2021. The virtual meet will then take place on Wednesday 31 March 2021.
