Evaluation Services icon
Gather the insights you need to manage programs and services, improve your work, make key decisions, and advocate for change.

Insights that matter

High quality information is a vital resource for delivering and strengthening social impact work. Our evaluation services help you to understand how your initiatives and services are working, how effective they are, and how they could be improved.

Process, impact and economic evaluation

Our work often combines the three strands of process evaluation, outcomes evaluation and economic evaluation. We will help you design a fit-for-purpose methodology to gather the insights you need and to communicate them to your key stakeholders.

Developmental evaluation

Effective social purpose work requires innovation. Our participatory Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning (MEL) approaches support you to evaluate pilot projects and to adapt and strengthen them in real time based on what you learn.

Building evaluation capacity

Organisations with strong MEL capacity are able to gather the information they need sustainably, and use it to achieve their goals. We will help you to develop program logics and theories of change, to create Monitoring & Evaluation frameworks and data collection and reporting tools, and to develop a learning culture.

We build evaluation skills through our collaborative consultancy approach, as well as our comprehensive MEL training and mentoring programs.
