Leicester group's infrastructure win

Voluntary Action Leicester has won a contract worth £1m a year to provide third sector infrastructure services across Leicestershire.

Leicestershire County Council put the service out to tender after voluntary sector groups in the county failed to agree on how it should be run (8 October, page 4).

Voluntary Action Leicester beat bids from the CVS Community Partnership, which provides support for voluntary organisations in Leicestershire and Rutland, and a partnership between North West Leicestershire Council for Voluntary Service and Voluntary Action Charnwood. The contract runs for three years.

About 30 staff will transfer to Voluntary Action Leicester from seven organisations across the county.
