Social worker and child looking at a toy on a kitchen table

External evaluation tender

We’re seeking someone to conduct an independent evaluation and produce a report covering the period April 2023 – October 2024

Help us evaluate and review our work from 2023 to 2024.

Currently one in ten children in England and Wales will experience some form of sexual abuse before the age of 16. We want to better understand how the work of the CSA Centre is helping to tackle this.

How are our resources being used in practice? Are they changing professional response and helping protect more children? Is our training giving professionals more confidence? Has the CSA Centre contributed to system-wide improvements in the identification and response of child sexual abuse? Is our work increasing knowledge and understanding in this area?

To help us answer these questions, we’re looking to employ someone to conduct an independent evaluation, using our existing monitoring and self-evaluation activity, to produce a report covering the period April 2023 – October 2024.


If you have experience engaging a wide range of stakeholders, working with central government, voluntary and public sector services, are adept at using a range of relevant research methods and are skilled in presenting data analysis – we would love to hear from you.
