Community Investment Fund






The EN:Able Community Investment Fund (formerly known as the Frameworks 4 Good Fund) is one of the consortium’s delivery vehicles for social and economic regeneration in the communities of its social housing  landlord members.

All Efficiency North frameworks have an integrated management strategy to deliver the consortium’s vision through its core aims:

  • efficiency;
  • workforce development;
  • community investment;
  • environment and sustainability.

Each theme has a measurable outcome and delivery vehicles are built into the frameworks to ensure that the outcome is achieved.

During the tender process prospective suppliers and contractors were evaluated on their responses demonstrating activities and projects they’d participated in which brought about social and economic benefit.  Applying this approach has resulted in frameworks populated by contractors who understand the concepts behind social economic regeneration and can also contribute to the strategies which lead to its successful delivery.
