We actively engage with communities to put them at the heart of their own development by engaging in strategies, projects, needs assessments or evaluations that affect them. We have a strong track record in building and strengthening local involvement and leadership.
We’re interested in sharing good practice and learning from other initiatives as well as offering support and intervention around our broad scope of community development, participation, networking, training and evaluation skills.
What We do
Our broad background has enabled us to provide informed, independent evaluation of projects from local to national scale and communicate our findings in clear, useful reports. We have used and developed a Theory of Change framework to plan and deliver evaluation.
We work on a range of projects to encourage and build participation of patients to inform health services, policies and strategies. Alongside that, we work directly with people with lived experience to support them in finding their voice and sharing their experience to drive change.
As part of many of our projects, we provide training to help our clients achieve their goals. This may involve group sessions or one-to-one capacity building. We also offer tailored training and have a new one-day course aimed at those involved in peer research and facilitation.
