Bespoke Evaluation Services

Want a more creative approach to evaluating projects? Want young people to be involved?

Whether a funding requirement, or simply to obtain an outside view, good evaluation is crucial to learning and finding out if targets have been met. It also provides the ideal opportunity to showcase good work and celebrate success. Creative evaluating and sharp designs can raise your company profile and attract new potential funders or volunteers – as well as publicising the great work your project does.
