Community Sport and Enterprise Evaluation Learning Set Final Impact Report

Published30th May 2014

Over 2 years from 2011 to 2013, 8 community sport organisations worked together with The Robertson Trust and Evaluation Support Scotland to build skills and capacity to measure and report on what we do and the difference we make.

This report is written from the perspective of the 8 organisations.

The learning set was successful. We all had different starting points but we have all improved our evaluation skills, knowledge and confidence. We have used evaluation to improve our work, motivate our people and attract more funding. We learned more about how we achieve outcomes and what those outcomes are.This report tells you:

What the benefits of doing evaluation are for community sport projects;
