Within the current climate of evidence based practice, having an independent evaluation of the work offers robust evidence about the quality of service provision, the strengths and the areas that may value from additional input. These findings can be invaluable when applying for new funding or evidencing your practice to existing funders*. The findings may also provide additional evidence of the outcomes during inspections.
Project evaluations will offer an unbiased account that is based on facts derived from many sources during the evaluation process. Rachel’s primary role will be to provide an independent service that is based on information gathered during the process.
