Grant funding to support building evaluation capacity
The Centre of Expertise on Child Sexual Abuse has launched an Evaluation Fund to support services in building their evaluation capacity. The funding is intended to assist with the generation of valuable evidence about the effectiveness of child sexual abuse/exploitation (CSA/E) interventions.
Statutory and not-for-profit frontline services working to address these issues can apply for a grant up to a value of £25,000.
The Centre has highlighted several key areas of interest, including interventions in educational settings, with care leavers, and with young people with learning difficulties. The grant funding can cover various aspects of evaluation, including the development of an evaluation framework, evaluation tools such as questionnaires and performance monitoring tools and data collection.
This is a great opportunity for service providers to strengthen their internal evaluation function and generate valuable evidence to support work countering CSA/E in order to benefit young people and families, and the wider sector.
Closing date for bids: Midday 7 July 2017.
Partners and non-partners can also discuss evaluation requirements with Research in Practice. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about our evaluation support and how we might work with you to improve the evidence you collect about your services.
