Spotlight: CAN Invest client City & Hackney Mind wins a £10m contract to deliver mental health services

CAN Invest worked with CHM to secure a grant of £95,815 from the ICRF (see below). The funds enabled CAN and our ICRF partners Cogent Ventures to help CHM prepare to bid for a £10m contract to deliver mental health services in Hackney and the City of London over 5 years. CAN prepared a financial model for the contract, allowing CHM to understand and negotiate the financial implications of the tender, as well as advising CHM on social impact measurement, business planning, cost reduction, and property considerations to expand their operations. The new contract will enable CHM to deliver much needed services to over 2,500 people, and as at November 2014 is the third-highest amount secured through work funded by the ICRF.
