Evaluator panel

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

The organisations which 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.

In order to ensure we have a diverse panel with the relevant skills, knowledge and expertise for our various grant rounds, we are committed to updating our Evaluator Panel on an annual basis. Applicants will be required to submit an expression of interest where they will have the opportunity to demonstrate their experience related to conducting and managing rigorous evaluations with young people. If you are interested in being contacted when we next update the panel, please email us at
