What metrics will you use to assess the effectiveness of the London Family Fund?

GLA’s City Intelligence Unit is conducting a full evaluation of each year of the London Family Fund, including qualitative interviews with families and project leads. The evaluation will measure:

1) the number of families engaged in the programme and their demographics;

2) the number of families that form new relationships and networks with other parents in their local areas; and

3) the reduction in their social isolation and loneliness.

The interim year-one evaluation has shown some early signs of success of the programme, with families reporting new relationships forming, increased sense of local belonging and reduced social isolation. The full evaluation will be available later this year.
