Savers Support Fund – Grantee Evaluation Specification
OnSide Youth Zone Network has secured funding from Nesta and DCMS through the Savers Support Fund to scale the Able to Manage social action programme to improve money management skills and reduce debt for 14-21year olds (up to aged 25 for young people with a disability).
The initiative delivers one to one money management training through volunteer mentors, up to 2 hours a week over a 10-week period; across nine locations; Blackburn, Bolton, Carlisle, Manchester, Oldham, Warrington, Wigan, Wirral & Wolverhampton. We are seeking to appoint an evaluator to carry out an impact evaluation as we scale this programme. Alongside this we would like the evaluator to support with some elements of process or formative evaluation, to help us understand in what circumstances and with whom the programme has greatest value, and where we could particularly benefit from improving our approaches to enable greater impact. This is primarily to understand our impact and continue to improve the model based on the learning of the nine Youth Zones as it grows.
