Evaluation services

We provide evaluation support to help you to measure the impact of your programmes or services and demonstrate their value.

About evaluation services

By evaluating your work, you’ll know whether you are focusing your resources and budget in the right areas and whether your services are achieving outcomes for children/adults and their families. Monitoring and evaluation supports ongoing evidence-informed decision-making about the future direction of services.

Depending on your specific need, we can tailor our approach to make sure it best meets your requirements. We offer a range of support including strategic level consultancy advice and guidance, training staff in research methods, as well as undertaking large-scale and/or long-term evaluations.

Examples of our support

  • Expert advice in developing strategies and frameworks for evaluating programmes, services and initiatives.
  • Training staff to gather feedback from service-users.
  • Development of tools to support data collection activities.
  • Independent collection and analysis of data using a range of quantitative and qualitative research methods, using online, telephone and face-to-face options.
  • Dissemination of research through reports, workshops and presentations.
  • Workshops to build capacity in identifying measurable outcomes and evaluation planning.

Working with us will give you the reassurance of objective evaluation conducted by experts. Whilst providing this independence, we also aim to work collaboratively to build the capacity and skills within your organisation so that you are able to evaluate the work that you do internally going forward.

As well as bespoke support, we have an existing range of evaluation guides and tools to enable best practice in service evaluation and design. These materials support the whole evaluation process from planning an evaluation through to collecting data and using the findings, including guidance on how to navigate important processes such as research governance and ethics.
