This will be issued as one contract and we welcome providers who may consider collaborating as a consortium or through sub-contracting. AfC are preparing to commission a single contract to operate and deliver youth provision with aspects of community work across Kingston and Richmond out of the following centres:

  • Hampton Youth Project – TW13 3HY • Dickerage Sports and Community Centre – KT1 3RU, and
  • Kingsnympton Youth Centre – KT2 7RR

The aim is for a provider to deliver support to young people through youth work approaches during their transition to adulthood and independence from each centre and from Dickerage only to enable a range of interesting and creative community activities for community groups outside of the youth service target age range.

The contract will be issued for a three year period with a possible extension for one further year. The value of the contract is within the region of £175k to £195k per year starting 1 April 2017.
