Community right to challenge
The right to challenge
The right to challenge allows voluntary and community groups, charities, parish councils, and local authority staff to bid to run a service where they believe they can do so differently and better. This may be a whole service or part of a service.
Organisations wishing to exercise the right to challenge will need to submit a written expression of interest. We have to consider and respond to expressions of interest which, if accepted, will trigger a procurement exercise for that service. The challenging body can then participate, alongside others.
