Help us measure what works to develop more integrated local areas

Belong are inviting Expressions of interest from experienced researchers to support the development of the first stage of an Integration and Cohesion Evaluation Toolkit.

The toolkit will be specifically targeted at programmes which are using sport and physical activity to deliver integration and cohesion programmes in local areas, although it is likely that the methodology will have a much wider applicability for other types of cohesion schemes. This proposal is for the first stage of project development with a second stage planned to take the product to full development.

We have £20,000 available for this first stage. Please see here: Belong – EOI for first stage of Evaluation Toolkit for more information and how to apply. The closing deadline for applications is 9am on Monday 13th January 2020.
