Invitation to Tender
Based on funding secured from the Social Action Fund, we are inviting tenders to conduct a study to evaluate the qualitative impact of The Summer Reading Challenge volunteering programme on participants, volunteers and key stakeholders.
This study intends to investigate the impact of young people's social action linked to reading on both Summer Reading Challenge participants and volunteers. In particular, the study aims to assess:
- The impact of working with young volunteers on reading engagement and confidence for young children taking part in the Summer Reading Challenge and their families;
- The impact of Summer Reading Challenge volunteering reading support on young people (13-24) supporting the annual Summer Reading Challenge run through public libraries;
- The value for libraries of working with young volunteers.
To find out more please download the full tender brief.
The deadline for proposals is 5.00pm on 9 May, 2014.
The study is expected to begin in June to coincide with the start of the Summer Reading Challenge and be completed by December 2014.
