Our Impact 

Working with Community Action Derby, we have developed a quantitative evaluation tool that demonstrates the impact of our input. This uses a variation of the Outcomes Star approach linked to a bespoke spreadsheet enabling us to evaluate progress against each outcome target and produce a variety of statistical analyses. This allows us to demonstrate the direct benefits of our Family Support and Mentoring Services for Derby children and families.

For our Family Support Service we can evidence positive impact on such outcomes as school attendance and attainment, levels of anti-social behaviour, relationships within the family, healthy lifestyles and engagement with social and other support services. In their evaluations our service-users report improvements in over 85% of the agreed outcome targets identified in their individual support plans. This is illustrated by the following example output from the evaluation tool mentioned above.

For our Mentoring Service we can evidence positive impact on such outcomes as school attendance, self-esteem, confidence and reduced social isolation. In their evaluations our service-users report improvements in over 85% of the agreed outcome targets identified in their individual support plans. This is illustrated by the following example output from our evaluation tool.
