Description

The CLLD programme is jointly funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the Growth Programme 2014-2020.
About the CLLD Programme
The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership identified Community Led Local Development as a way of delivering funding to the most deprived areas of Cornwall as part of the wider 'European Union Growth Programme'. Cornwall Development Company (CDC) manages the programme on behalf of the four Local Action Groups (LAGs). The programme runs until December 2022, with all delivery due to take place by September 2022.
CDC was successful in its bid to the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) and the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) to operate the Community Led Local Development (CLLD) programme in Cornwall. CLLD is a new way of delivering local development and is part funded by the European Structural Funds - European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and European Social Fund (ESF). The two funds form part of the European Structural and Investment Fund (ESIF) Programme for the period 2014-2020.
The fund is a delegated grant scheme with a value of £11.56m ESF and ERDF to support the delivery of the CLLD in Cornwall up until September 2022. The intention is to leverage an additional £1.9m private sector match and £1.7m public sector match.
The CLLD programme is based on four guiding principles:
• Being 'bottom-up' and targeted at local areas of greatest need
• Being about finding novel ways of addressing local challenges and opportunities
• Being guided by Local Development Strategies and led by Local Action Groups (LAGs)
• Bringing together different types of activity in different sectors in a coordinated way.

CDC is seeking to commission an experienced supplier to undertake a robust assessment of the CLLD Cornwall programme against its objectives and output and outcome targets.
The evaluation will consist of three phases with separate reporting requirements:

An interim evaluation - Completed by October 2021
The aim of the first interim evaluation is to evaluate the processes involved in delivering the Programme and to create a Summative Assessment Plan by July 2021 - see guidance via link ERDF Summative Assessment guidance.

A second interim evaluation - completed by October 2022
The aim of the second interim evaluation is to evaluate the programme progress against the Summative Assessment Plan. The second interim evaluation should include the outputs achieved to date and an individual commentary for each LAG as well as the overall programme perspective.

Final evaluation - Delivered by May 2023
The final evaluation should evaluate the achievement of outputs and outcomes of the programme, collectively and per LAG. It should provide substantial evidence for the Summative Assessment Report and assess the potential legacy of the programme.
