NSPCC funding for evaluation

The NSPCC has a research fund available for smaller organisations to demonstrate the impact of their work. They are calling for expressions of interest from organisations (with an annual budget up to £10m) to help build the evidence base on what works in helping children get back on track after abuse. The deadline for the one page submission is 2 November.

The NSPCC is committed to growing the evidence base on what works in helping children get back on track after abuse and neglect. They wish to promote the evidence base across the board. The funding is offered to build evidence on:

  • what sort of help is effective in improving outcomes for children with experience of abuse or neglect, and/or;
  • how the work of an organisation(s) delivering services to these children has an impact on the wider child protection system.

They encourage expressions of interest from small organisations that offer services or interventions aimed at helping children and young people get the right support at the right time and wish to formally assess the impact of their work. They expect to award between one and three proposals with funding. For more information on how to express your interest and the criteria for this funding, please contact researchresponses@nspcc.org.uk. Organisations must submit a one page expression of interest proposal by the 2 November 2017 at 5pm. Proposals that are successful will be contacted the w/c 6 November for any clarifications needed. They expect that between three and eight applicants will be asked to submit a full proposal by 30 November.
