Description of the contract

The Culture and Sport Evidence (CASE) programme board is seeking to commission research to enhance knowledge and understanding of the impact of its sectors on well-being. Although the impact of the culture and sport sectors on quality of life is widely acknowledged, there is little evidence on what this looks like and how it can be measured. This programme of work aims to develop understanding by considering the evidence base on the social benefits arising from engagement in these sectors. This will be considered in terms of the range of benefits generated, the impact of government funding and how produced benefits relate to the measurement of well-being. In summary, this programme aims to: • Develop evidence based narratives for each sector on what the range of social benefits arising from engagement with sport and culture are. This will make clear, and strengthen, the social case for government intervention to increase engagement. • Produce a conceptual framework to represent the relationships between social benefits arising from engagement in these sectors and explain the impact of our sectors on measured well-being. This will guide our decision making and ensure that potential social benefits are identified, understood and considered within both policy development and initiative design. • Develop guidance that provide policy makers, analysts and the designers of sport and culture initiatives with a clear and usable mechanism for consistently, proportionately and robustly considering how social benefits can be deliberately addressed within policy development, appraisal and evaluation. • Develop our knowledge and understanding of how identified social benefits can be measured, quantified, and/or monetised; identifying gaps and making recommendations on how they could be addressed.
