One of two evaluation partners has been appointed and we are in the process of appointing the second.

Evaluation data continues to be collected by all of the live projects and this data will be analysed and interpreted by our independent evaluator throughout the duration of their contract into 2016.

Results will be published after all projects have ended delivery and the external evaluator has completed their follow up work and analysis.
