Invitation to tender for project evaluation

Womens Health Matters is seeking an experienced research and evaluation consultant(s) to evaluate the effectiveness of its project The Key.

Womens Health Matters is a Leeds based charity who aim to reduce health inequalities experienced by women from communities across Leeds. Through group work, peer support and intensive 1:1 support, we create a safe environment where women can build trusting relationships and begin to recover their health and regain control of their lives. The Key project has received funding from the Big Lottery Fund (BLF) to extend and expand an existing project by three years, beginning April 2017. 

In its first three years, The Key enabled young women and girls to better recognise and deal with sexual abuse and domestic violence, with 61% ending or changing their abusive relationship, 91% reporting improved wellbeing and all participants reporting increased levels of confidence.  Over the next three years The Key will enable 324 of Leeds’ most vulnerable young women to recognise abuse, and we’ll empower them with the confidence and skills to end or change their relationships and stay safe via 121 support, peer education groups and early intervention programmes.

We are looking for an experienced evaluator to work with us across the three years of the project to carry out a robust evaluation of the project’s reach, achievements and impact, taking a women centred approach. The closing date for expressions of interest is Wednesday 26th April 2017. Further information about the details of the tender including our requirements and timescales can be found on our website -
