We have been awarded funding from The Baring Foundation for an exciting 12-month project that aims to tackle racial inequalities in the criminal justice system. This project will hold the government and public bodies to account on adhering to the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) and improving Equality Impact Assessments (EIAs) across the criminal justice sector.
The project adopts a three-pronged approach. It will:
Empower civil society actors with the expertise to identify and challenge racially discriminatory policies.
Inform and educate staff and officials in criminal justice agencies on how to improve EIAs.
Challenge public bodies by highlighting where the PSED has not been adhered to.
We are looking for an experienced external evaluator, who can evaluate the impact of the project in relation to its engagement and influence of key stakeholders. The evaluator will work with the CJA in the early stages of the project to develop a robust monitoring framework, to make sure we collect relevant and informative real time data, as well as gathering views and feedback from a range of stakeholders towards the end of the project. The final report will highlight key learnings and make recommendations for taking this work forward in the future.
More information about the project, the evaluation and how to apply is set out in the Terms of Reference.
