Evaluation Support Scotland has been working with organisations who are experienced in involving services users to develop a workbook that will help organisations plan why, when and how to involve the people they work with in evaluation.
The aim is to develop a practical tool that can be used by organisations to engage users in evaluation. The workbook covers stages of evaluation, different times and ways to involve people, and discusses the advantages and principles of involving users in evaluation. A draft copy of the workbook can be found here.
As part of this programme four projects have been taking part in a learning set to look at how the people they work with can be involved in evaluation. These projects are:
> Advocacy Service Aberdeen
> Highland SDS Consortium
> Carers Trust
> Scottish Consortium for Learning Disability
A draft copy of the workbook has been produced and Evaluation Support Scotland are seeking feedback to help them test and refine the work book. For more information about the project and the resource visit http://www.evaluationsupportscotland.org.uk/.
