I specialise in using practical and straightforward ways to gather robust evidence for evaluations, visitor studies and community consultation.

I advise clients on evaluation at the project planning stage (e.g. for Heritage Lottery Fund action plans), develop evaluation frameworks and carry out evaluations at the start (baseline), during a project (formative) and at the end (summative). This shows how and why project outcomes were met, and makes recommendations for the future. To increase an organisation’s skills and capacity, I provide evaluation training for staff and volunteers.

Some evaluation projects are:

  • Quarry Bank, National Trust – major redevelopment and re-interpretation of the site;
  • Glass Beats, National Glass Centre – young people making and playing glass and ceramic instruments;
  • Living Wild at Kielder, Kielder Water and Forest Park Development Trust – encouraging visitors to find out more about wildlife.
