Our Shared Cultural Heritage
Request for proposals for Evaluation Partner

*Application deadline now extended to 13 May 2019 at 11.59pm*

Our Shared Cultural Heritage (OSCH) is a UK-based initiative to test and evaluate new, sustainable models for heritage organisations to better engage young people – particularly those of South Asian descent – in partnership with Glasgow Life, Manchester Museums and Galleries, Rathbone Training, and UK Youth. It is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund’s Kick the Dust programme.

We are calling for proposals for an Evaluation Partner to work closely with the OSCH partners and Youth Evaluators to evaluate the project between 2019 and 2022 in both Glasgow and Manchester. The Evaluation Partner will also train and monitor the Youth Evaluators – young people aged 16-21 – who will support the project evaluation.

We welcome collaborative bids from sole traders, youth groups, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises and researchers.
