The Fund is seeking to appoint a supplier (an individual organisation or a partnership with a lead supplier) to work with grant-holders and a range of the Fund's internal teams in helping us to deliver a curated content package which demonstrates the climate action work happening across communities, provides it with a platform, voice and opportunity to inform and inspire others. The appointed supplier will help define what we want to achieve via programme content and therefore what should be created, collated and curated. Equally important in this will be better equipping and supporting grant-holders and their partners to identify, create and collate quality content, and develop a good understanding of how to impactfully communicate their story and engage a wider audience.

It is intended that the supplier would need to provide both strategic guidance and ideas for the development of content, as well as creating content directly, working where appropriate directly with funded projects, and providing any necessary support or training to them. Working to a commitment of 'learning out loud', it is expected that the supplier will seek to generate content from the start and work with us to adapt and refine our approach as we go.

The below is not an exhaustive list of services and expectations; please note that we are also looking for bidders to provide suggestions and creativity, based on their own experiences, as to how best to deliver this work:

1. Define the strategic principles of our approach to programme content
2. Use of other platforms
3. Support grant-holders with content creation
