Bookbug Evaluation Tender

Bookbug Evaluation Tender

Scottish Book Trust invites tenders for an evaluation of Bookbug for the Home training delivered direct to families involved in social work. The evaluation will gather information to understand what impact this training has had on relationships between parents and children supported by social work (including at contact visits for children looked after at home).

This includes supporting social workers and their objectives(family nurture, attachment, positive family interaction and developing relationships with families), utilising Bookbug’s key messages of talking, singing, cuddling and sharing books from birth.

This evaluation will be used to inform project planning (including scale up and spread) and also to show impact in reaching out to parents who have young children in care.

The budget available for this evaluation, including VAT and any expenses, is no more than £6000. Please download and read the full evaluation brief.

Tenders should be submitted by email to by January 21st, 2019 at 5 pm.
