    Terms of Reference – R&D Donor Mapping Consultant

    Organisational Description

    Stichting War Child is an organisation that works exclusively to improve the lives of children and communities affected by conflict. Millions of children live in nations affected by war. Children exposed to war are vulnerable to increased rates of PTSD, depression, anxiety, and externalizing behaviours. There are a small but growing number of intervention studies conducted in these settings in an effort to improve child psychosocial outcomes. However, tremendous gaps exist in the ability to provide effective care that targets known risk factors at different ecological levels after war, including family environments, child protection risks within communities, and poor quality education.

    The agenda of War Child’s Research and Development (R&D) geared towards creating a multi-levelled care system that will include evidence-based interventions, alongside methods to improve access, acceptability, and quality of implementation. The Care System approach embraces; (1) an integrated approach that combines and ensures that interventions are interconnected and mutually strengthening, and that a range of different interventions are offered to respond to the varying needs of children and their caregivers; (2) a multi-level system which means interventions range from lower-intensity and least restrictive access interventions that aim to promote wellbeing and prevent problems from arising, to higher-intensity and more restricted access interventions targeting children experiencing significant and enduring distress and; (3) a socio-ecological approach, with services targeted at different ecological levels (individual and peers, families, schools, communities, civil society and state authorities), which recognises how children’s development is inextricably linked to the families, communities, economic situation, social values and cultural influences that surround them and provide for their basic needs and protection.

    Background

    War Child’s multi-level care system consists of nine core interventions, and three enabling factors. As part of its 2016-2020 Strategic Plan, War Child aims to have four of these core interventions fully evidenced by 2020. The R&D department is looking for funding partners to support this endeavour. A dedicated Grant Management Specialist will be supporting the R&D department in fundraising and grant management, but additional short-term support is sought to and provide a detailed mapping of funding opportunities for the R&D research agenda on which the Programmes, Partnerships and Grant (2PG) department can base their fundraising efforts. Should opportunities arise, the consultant may also assist in the writing of proposals/concept notes.

    Scope of Work

    The consultant will develop an overview of current R&D donor and academic networks, support the identification of new and/or key funding partners, and provide a detailed mapping of funding opportunities per core intervention/enabling factor. The consultant may also be asked to take the lead in writing concept notes/proposals (particularly in the area of child protection), should opportunities for funding arise between November 2018 and March 2019. The consultant will work in close collaboration with the R&D and 2PG departments, with the consultant reporting directly to the relevant Grant Management Specialist.
