Neuro Diverse Strategy (NDS) Coaching Programme – Expression of Interest

Introduction to 3SC

3SC’s vision is of the third sector delivering a greater amount of public sector contracts and social impact. To realise the achievement of this vision we win and manage contracts on behalf of charities, social enterprises, voluntary and community organisations. All have a vital role to play in the delivery of public services but the size and complexity of the tendering process and increasingly demanding contracts can make it difficult for organisations to compete on their own. 3SC bring expertise in creating and managing supply chains of third sector organisations to deliver effective, high quality services that provide results and value for money.


3SC invites expressions of interest from organisations who want to work in a consortium to deliver the NDS Coaching Programme.
