Welcome to the Northern Inclusion Consortium

Together we have collective power to bid for work as a prime contractor, or as a strong partner alongside existing primes. We believe in delivery by the sector, for the sector.

What we offer

The NIC can operate as a third sector prime, or act as a lead for subcontracting to the wider sector in the North of England. We want to take an active role in developing the commissioning landscape.
