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!”
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.
