Scope for the Invitation to Tender for the Campaigning and Youth Voice Partner for the Peer Action Collective (PAC)

We’re looking to appoint a partners with experience in campaigning and media training. You’ll help us amplify the voices of young people affected by violence.

About the project

All too often, young people who experience violence aren’t heard. But change won’t happen if they’re not at the heart of it. That’s why the Peer Action Collective (PAC) exists.

Funded by the Youth Endowment Fund, the #iwill Fund (a joint investment between The National Lottery Community Fund and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport) and the Co-op Group, the PAC is here to support young people to take the lead. It’s a ground-breaking network of peer researchers. That means that young people will be in charge of asking questions and finding out what needs to happen to make their area a better place for to live.

But it’s about more than learning about what needs to change. Being part of the PAC means young people will get support to take their research and turn it into action. From setting up a youth centre, taking action to improve local mental health services, or supporting more young people into employment – together, young people will make their communities safer, fairer places.

As the Campaigning and Youth Voice Partner, you’ll provide PAC members with the support they need to make their campaigns a success.

Invitation To Tender for Toolkit and Evidence Synthesis Partner: Request for Proposals

The Youth Endowment Fund plans to rapidly expand its evidence synthesis on preventing youth violence over the next two years. We will do this by:

  1. Commissioning up to 12 high-quality systematic reviews
  2. Updating and enhancing YEF’s existing study database, which sits beneath the Evidence and Gap Map (EGM)

This Invitation To Tender invites proposals for the role of Toolkit and Evidence Synthesis Partner, who will oversee the production and quality appraisal of the systematic reviews, update the EGM and central database with the review findings, and produce technical reports to support the development of new Toolkit topics. The appointed team does not necessarily have to produce the reviews themselves but must ensure they are carried out consistently and contribute to the EGM. We plan to publish the reviews commissioned from this work on the YEF website.
