Providers of social services are typically accountable to funders (particularly government). Evaluation can help to understand what works, what has been less successful, and why. It can help to improve delivery, and the findings can encourage others to adopt the successful elements of a programme or service.
|Evaluation planning for funding applicants
Written for providers, this guide describes the basics of outcomes evaluation planning (other types of evaluations are not covered), and how it relates to a funding application.
It’s a useful step-by-step guide, which can be used in conjunction with the evaluation handbook (due for publication mid-2017).
