Invitation to Tender: Evaluation of Amplify NI

Date: 15 June 2017

We are looking for an organisation(s) to evaluate our innovative Amplify programme in Northern Ireland. Amplify NI helps people take action together to create fairer communities where everyone can thrive. We currently deliver the Amplify NI programmes in Belfast, Derry-Londonderry and Enniskillen.

We believe everyone can make a difference, and that positive social change is most likely to happen when people from every part of society are involved. We bring people and organisations together to:

  • Understand people’s lived experiences of inequality and how it can be overcome (using ethnographic and participatory research);
  • Amplify new narratives of the better future people want for their communities;
  • Create and grow the innovative projects, collaborations, organisations and campaigns needed to make change happen; and
  • Support connected movements of people working and learning together.

Amplify NI has been funded over four years by the Big Lottery Fund and designed and facilitated by The Young Foundation which is a research and action based institute with a formidable track record of confronting inequalities.

To bring together learning, and understand more about our impact, The Young Foundation would like to engage with a suitable organisation(s) to undertake a continuous evaluation of Amplify NI. We would like this to take place from now until the end of the programme in 2019. We are open to partnerships bids for the evaluation.

In apply, please submit a proposal of no more than 15 pages to Roger Warnock (Programme Lead Ireland) at roger.warnock@youngfoundation.org by 5 pm on Friday 21st July. Download the full tender for details of what to include in the submission.

Please note questions referring to the tender will be answered up to 5 pm on Friday 7th July.
