  • Evaluation Support Scotland - Evaluating Prevention Resource

    Created: 14/05/2024
    News/Events Category: General News


    Many third sector organisations provide support or run services that prevent bad things happening to people. However, prevention is hard to evaluate.  Evaluation Support Scotland (ESS) works with third sector organisations and funders so that they can measure and explain their impact.  They are often asked questions such as:

    • How do we measure something that hasn’t happened?
    • How can we take a positive approach when prevention is basically a negative idea?
    • How do we evaluate long term when funding is short term?

    This guide shares learning from our work about how to evaluate prevention. They suggest approaches you can take and share examples from the third sector.
