Evaluator panel

We commission independent organisations to rigorously evaluate the implementation and impact of all the interventions we fund.

The organisations that evaluate our funded projects are part of what we call our Evaluator Panel.

Our evaluators are responsible for the implementation of all parts of the evaluation, including: developing a research protocol; data collection; randomisation (where appropriate); and, coordinating and conducting qualitative research and field work.

Join our Evaluation Panel

We’re looking to update and add to our evaluation partners to ensure that we have a panel with the skills, knowledge and expertise relevant for our themed grant rounds, as well as ensure we increase its diversity.

If your organisation is interested in becoming part of the panel and having the opportunity to evaluate our funded projects, please read our Expression of Interest (EOI) Briefing document and submit an online application.

Please note that this EOI is only open to new applicants. Members who are already part of the YEF evaluator panel do not need to reapply.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss your suitability, please contact us on:
