The Development Fund Evaluation Report considers how the aims and objectives of the Self Management Development Fund have been realised, and focuses on the processes involved. Download the Interim Development Fund Evaluation Report here
A series of three Special Reports will follow this report, focusing on;
  • Development
  • Sustainability
  • Partnerships
The Focus on Development Report highlights the range of ways that the Self Management Fund projects developed their ideas and approaches – and features some new inspirational Case Studies. Focus on Development Report
The report follows from the Interim Evaluation Report for the Self Management Development Fund, and is the first in a series of Focus Reports which will be produced over the next few months. A full evaluation report will be available in the New Year.

The Self Management Fund

The Self Management Fund ran from 2009/10 – 2010/11 during which it invested £4m and supported 81 projects across Scotland.  
The IMPACT Evaluation Report, which reviews the background and aims of the Fund, how the money was allocated, challenges, achievements and learning and includes case studies from funded projects, was published in October 2011.
IMPACT - Evaluation Report Published
Steven Marwick, Director of Evaluation Support Scotland said:
“the ALLIANCE’s Impact Report is a leading example of how a funder and funded projects can work together to share learning.  The report is creative and reflective.  Evaluation should tell us the story of how and why difference is made to people’s lives.  And that’s exactly what the Impact Report does!”  

Self Management Fund Special Reports

Following the launch of the Interim Evaluation Report, the ALLIANCE produced a series of Special Reports on the Self Management Fund. These reports focus on the themes of the evaluation, and highlight some of the great projects around the country.
