PRACTICAL information on how to bid for contracts with Halton Council is being offered to voluntary and community groups.

Halton and St Helens Voluntary and Community Action is holding sessions about the Star quality award and how this can support organisations to secure contracts with the local authority.

People will be able to meet staff from the council’s procurement team and find out how the process works.

Morning and evening sessions will be held on Thursday, May 29.
