Waterford PPN: Invitation to Tender

Invitation to Tender for Support in Delivery of Waterford Wellbeing Vision Statement


Waterford PPN wishes to engage a consultant to carry out the Waterford Wellbeing Vision Statement in collaboration with Waterford PPN Staff & Working Group

Background: Waterford PPN is an independent network of community, voluntary, social inclusion and environmental organisations, working to build a better community for Waterford City & County.  The PPN is managed by a voluntary Secretariat which reports to PPN members through the Plenary. PPNs give citizens a greater say in local government decisions which affect their communities.  Waterford PPN has more than 700 members and includes community-based groups, organisations, associations, clubs, societies and charities. Waterford PPN is funded and supported by Waterford City & Council and the Department of Rural and Community Development.

The Dept of Community & Rural Development has tasked all PPNs to complete a Wellbeing Vision Statement for their County/City by year end 2020. This requires a research and consultation process with stakeholders and representative groups in Waterford City & County.

Community Wellbeing Vision Statements are designed to set out the vision of the PPN member groups, to inform both the PPN and the wide range of external agencies and policy makers with which it engages. In particular, these statements are a reference point for PPN representatives on local authority policy and decision making bodies. They provide direction to the representatives as to the priorities and requirements of the communities being represented. As a result, they ensure that representatives are clear about the views of the groups they are representing when inputting into local decision-making processes.
