Deadline: Friday 17 March

granton:hub - a charity set up to explore the long term community use of Madelvic House - a historic building based in Granton, Edinburgh, is now seeking proposals from experienced Community Engagement professionals to deliver a 4 month project.

granton:hub have secured funding for a programme of Community Engagement to support its next phase of development and are now looking for an experienced person, with a proven track record of successful delivery of community engagement, to carry out a project on its behalf over the next 4 months (mid-March - June 2017).

The project will fit around public engagement work already being carried out by granton:hub, which includes a launch event on 29-30 April (funded through Celebrate Scotland) and a May public programme of classes, workshops and activities, delivered by members of the steering group, Artists in Residence, granton:hub garden partners and others.

Reporting to the Trustees, the aims of this Community Engagement project are to:

  • Identify and target people in the local community who are most likely to want to get involved in and benefit from granton:hub’s activities
  • Maximise awareness and involvement of the local community and other communities of interest in our launch event (29/30 April) and follow-up activities programme (May)
  • Co-ordinate the organisation of the launch event to maximise its community engagement and business development potential
  • Clarify the niche that granton:hub is best suited to fill in relation to other local groups and services
  • Prepare a report evidencing local needs and the benefits granton:hub can provide to fulfil these needs and evaluating the feasibility of the proposed range of activities. This should be written in a way that will support successful funding applications for a permanent presence in Madelvic House, justifying making building alterations and employing staff.

There is an allocated budget of £2350 for the work. If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please contact by Friday 17 March, with details on how you will meet the project’s objectives, what methods you will use and what the deliverables will be.

Please read this briefing document carefully before you submit your details.
