'Interested in consortia bids?'

With ongoing changes to public services and subsequent opportunities for third sector providers to tender for public service and other contracts via Sell2Wales, and in a picture of reduced budgets to deliver complex services, there is an increasing emphasis on working in partnership.

As third sector organisations and providers of services, we know consortia are an effective way of sharing expertise as well as preserving service specialisms.

C3SC members are invited to get in touch with us with any specific requests for support to develop consortia bids when commissioning opportunities arise through Sell2Wales. We would also like to remind our members that C3SC’s Membership Directory, as well as the Dewis Cymru directory, provide a summary of the services other C3SC members offer.

Please make your requests for consortia support and networking to This email address is being protected from spambots.

In an effort to highlight to SMEs those opportunities considered suitable for consortia, Sell2Wales has added a new question to contract notice templates. If an opportunity is suitable for consortia, this will be specified automatically in the 'Additional information' section of the published notice.
