Collaborative evaluation .. we are better together!

As part of our work supporting social enterprises, charities and community groups with impact evaluation, we ran an event on 12th April 2016 asking ‘Are We Better Together?’. The aim was to explore the idea of collaborative evaluation.


Our event was part of Marmalade, the week long, informal, dynamic, free fringe event to the Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship.


What did we do?

We brought people from the third sector, funders and researchers together to co-create solutions to the challenges of evaluating social impact.



What happened?

As you can tell, the energy in the room was amazing and we could really sense that:


  • powerful cross-sector learning took place
  • it helped for people to walk in each other’s shoes when thinking about impact evaluation
  • participants enjoyed working together and co-creating solutions
  • we are, indeed,  better together and there is much scope for collaborative evaluation

We look forward to sharing the learning from this event and our on-going evaluation journey.


Importance of impact evaluation

There is no doubt that impact evaluation is becoming more and more critical to securing funding for your organisation.  Quite simply, if your organisation has a workable, effective evaluation framework it will be in a much stronger position to survive and thrive.
