Invitation to Tender: Evaluation of tide

We are inviting tenders to evaluate the effectiveness and impact of tide (Together in Dementia Every Day), funded by Life Changes Trust and being delivered over a four-year period across Scotland.

We wish to commission an evaluation of the tide project in Scotland to assess the extent to which it has achieved its stated outcomes and the impact of the network, specifically:

 To assess and explain to what extent the project has enabled carers to gain confidence and new skills

 To assess and explain to what extent carers’ confidence has increased their ability to influence positive changes in policy, commissioning and services

 To assess the extent to which carers feel less isolated

 To assess the extent to which carers feel that their health and well-being has improved as a result of peer support through tide

 To assess any other benefits to carers from participation in tide

– To assess and explain whether the project has had any wider impacts, in terms of policy, practice, research, education, commissioning and services locally, regionally and nationally and how this has occurred

 To provide recommendations on taking this approach forward across Scotland
