CIC Association

Serving Community Enterprise

Well after more than 20 years working in community enterprises meeting the challenges of government and EU opportunities - I decided to it was time to compete. I have been involved in writing and developing social policy from an economic standpoint for many as a bid writer and policy researcher.

The changes to the procurement activities of local authorities and the public sector as a whole enabled me to work across the world from my home office in Exeter. In the last couple of years the role of developing the CIC's I work with to compete in this market has grown and now particularly in Health and Social care with some of them winning lucrative contracts for the provision of local services.

The critical aspects is building the confidence of the CIC's to compete once achieved it becomes real fun to explore just how innovation is changing the delviery of services in the UK.


I run training, write tenders, bids and blogs, set up the infrastructure to ensure that all aspects of complaince are met from the outset and I challenge the processes used in procurement for CIC's when they are excluded


Its fun and very successful

Hi Mark


I was hoping you would be able to help me out.  My business partner and I are setting up a youth organisation called Aspire 2 Achieve.  We want to set it u as a CIC but not quite sure which type.  If you have a few minutes to spare to give us an insight on the different types that would help us very much.  If you need any more details please so not hesitate to ask.


Hope to hear from you soon.
