Comic Relief, in partnership with the MMHA, are currently undertaking a tender process to commission the development of a set of quality assurance principles for peer support in perinatal mental health. This forms part of Comic Relief’s Maternal Mental Health Strategy.
We are interested in bids from individuals or organisations and from partnerships of interested bodies who can demonstrate expertise and experience of quality assurance theory and concepts and their application in voluntary and community sector environments.. The link to the invitation to tender can be found here, and the deadline for applications is 5 July 2017.
We hope that the development of bespoke Quality Assurance principles will assure the quality and consistency of online and face-to-face peer support in perinatal mental health. They will also form a key part of wider work to ensure such peer support is safe, accessible to all, high quality, evidence-based, trusted by clinical services and achieves maximum impact. We envision that the development of these principles will be delivered by 2018.
Please forward your application, or any questions regarding the tender, to Inés Meza-Mitcher, Membership and Communications Assistant for the MMHA (firstname.lastname@example.org).
