Evaluating our impact

The Trust is working towards contributing to the evidence-base around health inequalities, and identifying the impact we are having on the ground.

Our Local Conversations programme

Formative evaluation findings

We worked with the New Economics Foundation (NEF) to carry out a formative evaluation of our Local Conversations programme. This has helped us understand the early development of this longer-term, place-based funding programme.

The findings have highlighted some useful recommendations for us to carry forward. The report also provides us with a baseline to measure progress that the 23 Local Conversation projects are having in their neighbourhoods.

We will be working with NEF over the coming four years to evaluate the impact of the Local Conversations programme.

Our Active Communities programme

Evaluation findings

The Trust worked with research consultancy Ecorys to conduct an evaluation of the Active Communities programme and assess its impact since its inception in 2013. The report highlights ways in which funded projects are achieving the two key programme aims; increasing social links and ties, and collective control - supporting residents to gain a sense of ownership and choice by developing their project and neighbourhood.
