Monitoring & Evaluation of Livingwell

Workshop at Annual Conference

workshop structure
Workshop Structure

Part 1: Presentation

  • GHK and this study
  • Challenges facing us
  • Two possible approaches
  • The one we used

Part 2: Group Discussion

who are ghk what are we doing
Who are GHK? What are we doing?
  • GHK:
    • Employee-owned research firm
    • Multi-disciplinary: work in most policy areas
    • Specialism in evaluation
    • Local
  • Livingwell Project:
    • WMRA
    • Quarterly monitoring
    • Ongoing evaluation
    • Of projects, but at regional level
inherent challenges
Inherent Challenges
  • All the usual evaluation challenges, plus…
  • Diversity of projects:
    • £
    • target groups
    • desired outcomes
    • interventions
    • contexts
    • capacity at project level
  • The need to ‘add it up’ to regional level:
    • Inputs (£) are easy…outputs more problematic…outcomes the real challenge
one possible response our approach
One Possible Response & Our Approach
  • Possible Response:
    • Decide what a wellbeing is
    • Give projects a tool to measure it
    • Advantage: can add this up easily (compare approaches??)
    • Disadvantage: ignores complexity / reality
  • Our Approach:
    • From the ‘project up’ (not ‘programme down’)
    • Based on individual project plans
    • Guidance and support to projects’ self-evaluation
    • Backed by some external evaluation
basis of approach theories of change
Basis of Approach: Theories of Change

Rationale for intervention

(problem / opportunity – and most appropriate response - identified)

Inputs

(what you have)

Impact

(wider societal change)

Outcomes

(the effect this has)

Activities

(what you do)

Do this for each project, then add-up each element ...

applying this model
Applying this Model
  • Project M&E plans:
    • Project-level theory of change
    • Specific quarterly / annual indicators
    • Common tools for common outcomes, e.g. Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-being Scale
    • Common outcomes at ‘theme’ level
    • But – not a blanket approach (e.g. adults with learning difficulties / low project capacity)
  • Where does this leave us?
    • Allows aggregation, but retains flexibility
    • Makes our job more complex, but more like the real world!
final reflections
Final Reflections
  • Needs different skills:
    • More collaborative
    • More facilitative
    • Understand constraints facing practitioners
  • Requires a balance between:
    • Adding things up (quantitative)
    • Explaining and learning (qualitative)
  • Overall, a sound approach - given challenges outlined at start
