PSVT looking to commission a consultant to carry out community engagement research

People walking through Port Sunlight village, including a couple walking and talking, an older person with a walking stick, and child riding a bike with their guardian in the distance.

In response to a range of varied challenges, PSVT is considering how we should approach resident engagement in the future. We are looking for a consultant or consultancy team to carry out initial work with us to explore best practice and develop some options for consideration by the Board of Trustees, as part of a staged approach to developing new practice in our relationship with village residents and PSVT tenants.

The consultant must have demonstrable experience of community engagement and consultation, an understanding of charity governance, community development and capacity building, as well as strong skills in research, strategic thinking and communication.
