Community Communication Champions Evaluation & Consultancy
To support parents, Norwich OA have developed a strategy to support families with home learning. This has included recruiting a team of Community Communication Champions who each work with a target ward in Norwich: University, Wensum, Mile Cross and Catton Grove. Champions support neighbourhoods in each of these four wards and make introductions with parents least likely to engage with support and encourage/accompany them to group speech and language sessions in their local area. Champions also provide resources, run group sessions within target neighbourhoods and link with local resources and support to stimulate language development in early years. We are looking for a provider to complete an evaluation of this innovative work. The purpose of this evaluation and consultancy support is primarily to determine what difference the home learning interventions have made, and whether children and parents who have been involved in the activities feel and/or derive any benefit from them.
