Co-designing a Payment for Involvement Policy for York MCN

We are seeking an organisation or consultancy to help us co-design a Payment for Involvement Policy.


The policy will aim to compensate people with lived experience for their involvement in co-producing positive change and the improvement of systems and services in York.


The co-design process will include designing and delivering a collaborative process involving multiple local stakeholders.  


We have written a Brief detailing the work. The Brief is framed to suit an organisation or consultancy contracted to hold this work in its entirety, including bringing in any outside skills and expertise deemed appropriate (subcontracting). However, we are also happy to speak to people (e.g. sole traders/independent consultants) who are interested in individual elements of the process but for whom the whole tender is not appropriate. 

The closing date for applications is 4th October 2022. We intend to hold conversations with shortlisted applicants the week commencing 17th October 2022, and hope that the successful candidate(s) will be available to begin work as soon as possible.

We are happy to talk to you before you work up the proposal.


If you have questions and would like to talk beforehand, you can email Catherine Scott (York MCN) at, or call her on 07522 229833, or Oliver French (Lankelly Chase) at
