Expressions of interest will be reviewed by a panel of VCSE partners, supported by YPF Trust.

They will make a recommendation to West Northamptonshire Council, who will make a final decision on appointing the Host Organisation.

The Host Organisation will then enter into a funding agreement with West Northamptonshire Council. West Northamptonshire Council have made Seed funding of £39,000 available for the Activities of the Host Organisation during the 18 months.

It is envisaged that a final decision will be made in September 2023, with work beginning in October 2023 and lasting a period of 18 months.
