Description of the contract

The estimated value of the contract is up to £75,000 including VAT and expenses. The contract term is 9 March 2015 to 2 September 2015. The Big Lottery Fund (the Fund) would like to commission a research study that explores what we have funded in terms of addressing domestic abuse and what we have learnt in supporting those affected by domestic abuse and how it can be prevented. We are interested in learning from what we have funded to understand what works in supporting those affected by domestic abuse and how it can be prevented. We are keen for this research to feed into our policy and programme development but to also share the learning with our relevant stakeholders and grant holders. We are also interested in understanding the range of outcomes measurement frameworks that are available in this area and to identify ways in which projects can develop a stronger case for sustainability. We require the following research questions to be addressed as part of this study: 1. Briefly, what is the current domestic abuse context across the UK (in terms of Government policy and provision of service) and how do our relevant investments fit into it? Are there any differences across the UK? 2. What are the different types of projects that we have funded to tackle domestic abuse across the UK and what specific models have been most effective? 3. What have we learnt from our funding in terms of what works in supporting those affected by domestic abuse, including men, women and children, and in preventing it? How does this learning add to, complement or compare to wider evidence? 4. What outcome measurement frameworks are available across the sector for projects addressing domestic abuse and what are the similarities/overlaps between them? What circumstances do they work best in? 5. What do domestic abuse projects need to help them develop a stronger case for sustainability? How can the Fund practically support this? The outputs we expect from this study are: 1. Regular informal progress updates in a format and timing to be agreed 2. A concise report (max 30 pages) in plain English which addresses the key areas and questions outlined in this scope of work. The report should include an executive summary which clearly highlights the main points (max 4 pages) and could standalone as a separate summary report. We would like the service provider to explore options for using infographics to display key findings 3. Any relevant outputs from social media activity 4. A set of impact case studies illustrating the range of projects we have funded across the UK, with an accompanying framework/index to help identify relevant case studies by theme 5. A table (or similar) outlining the outcomes measurement frameworks available and the similarities/overlaps between them 6. A presentation and discussion of the findings with staff at the Fund and with key stakeholders across the UK Further details about our requirements can be found in the ITT.
