Invitation to tender – Age Better in Sheffield – Pop up events

We want to commission a creative organisation to co-design, and co-deliver a range of different events and activities that raise the profile of social isolation, and showcase the range of different ways that people aged 50+ can take part in the Age Better in Sheffield programme.

We’ve put together a briefing document that outlines what we’re looking for and includes all the information you need to know about Age Better in Sheffield.
