  • Evaluation

    Do you understand the difference you are making? Do you know what works? Are you able to demonstrate the impact of your strategies, policies or interventions?

    If any of these questions sound familiar, then you are likely to want to undertake evaluation to provide you with answers. To support those undertaking evaluation, we have launched an Evaluation Guide. Developed with support from national partners, the guide serves as an introduction to evaluation and sets out the key steps and factors that need to be considered when planning evaluation.

    The guide does not try to be the definitive source of information on evaluation. It seeks to cover the key concepts and terminology, including evaluation types, evidence bases and measuring options. It aims to convey the necessary steps required in effective and proportionate evaluation. It also points you in the direction of further guidance and support. We plan to develop the guide further as public sector understanding and use of evaluation evolves.

    In addition to the guide, we can help partners with their evaluations, whether that be supporting your evaluation planning or helping you with your detailed activity.

    If you’d like more information about how we can support you, please get in touch. We are here to help!
